Barlow lenses offer an easy, economical way to increase the magnification range of your eyepieces. A 2x Barlow lens doubles the magnifying power of your eyepiece by doubling its effective focal length. For example, an 18mm eyepiece used with a 2x Barlow lens would have the magnifying power of a 9mm eyepiece. It’s like having two eyepieces in one! If you’re looking for an affordable way to achieve high-power viewing of the moon and planets, double stars and even close-up views of terrestrial subjects, a Barlow lens is the answer. Barlow lenses mount into either your telescope’s 1.25" focuser or visual back.
The NEW Celestron X-Cel Barlow is a high quality 2x Barlow lens that doubles the magnification of all 1.25" eyepieces. This Barlow has great features like, low profile, 3-element fully-multicoated optical design and blacked lens edges.
- 3-element Fully multi coated design
- Brass pressure ring - Holds eyepiece more securely without damaging barrel
- Rubber grip and hard black anodize finish with orange ring
- Threaded for 1.25" filters
Product carries full 2-year manufacturer's limited factory warranty (within US/Canada only)

I like this 2X SO much better than the stock 3X Barlow that came with my old 'scope. I don't regret this purchase one bit.

It's large, heavy and bulky, and personally I don't like stuff with rubber on it. The optics are splendid. Best I have tried.

I was looking for a good 2x barlow with 3 elements. This Celestron barlow fit what I wanted very well and provided very good image quality.

This is produced to replace the made-in-Japan Ultima series, and I have no issues with its capabilities for visual astronomy. Unlike the unit it replaces, this model utilizes a brass clamping ring to hold eyepieces, which van catch on the "safety" cutout some mfrs have in their design.
