The Meade Series 4000 2x Short-Focus Barlow Lens is a compact "shorty" style 1.25" 2x lens. This means it doubles the magnification of your 1.25" eyepieces while providing high quality images. Meade's most popular Barlow due to its excellent quality, value, and usefulness on nearly every model telescope sold.

It features a 26mm lens aperture, 1.25" diameter barrel, multi-coated optics, and will doubles the power of any 1.25" eyepiece without adding a very long length between the telescope and the eyepiece like some longer Barlow lenses would. Insert this into the telescope's eyepiece holder first, and then insert your eyepiece into the Barlow.

May also be used in a diagonal mirror either between the diagonal and eyepiece for a 2x magnification factor or between the eyepiece holder and diagonal for a magnification of approximately 3x. Note that in the 3x configuration an extension tube may be necessary between the telescope and the diagonal in order to reach focus. Compatible with nearly any telescope which uses 1.25" eyepieces.
