Product Details

New model with twist lock adapter instead of set-screws.

For observers who want to power-up their 2" eyepieces, the Antares model 2UBSTL barlow lens with twist lock offers a 1.6x increase in magnification and reduced spherical aberration with all oculars. With a clear aperture of 1.64" (41.8mm) and a short length tube, this fully multicoated achromatic design will work with telescopes with the 2" format, including those using a 2" diagonal.

This new version of Antares' popular 2UBS barlow features an integrated twist-lock adapter / clamping mechanism to securely center and hold your eyepiece. The inner compression ring is made of polypropylene and will not mar your eyepieces.

Features edge-blackened elements, and internal baffling. When used with a diagonal, this barlow will provide approximately 2.4x if placed before the diagonal or 1.6x if inserted into the diagonal.

  • Clear aperture = 1.64" / 41.8mm

  • Length of upper black barrel: 1.71" / 43.4mm

  • End caps: Yes (1 - lower only) but subject to change without notice
  • Country: Assembled in Canada using Japanese optics

Note that the use of any optical element like barlows and focal reducers changes the focus point of your telescope, requiring additional in-focus or out-focus travel. The exact amount of focus travel required will depend on the optics and mechanics of your specific set-up (telescope, diagonal (if used), barlow, and eyepiece). Hence, be aware that you may not be able to reach focus with all eyepieces or in all configurations with a given barlow.

Please note: A couple of tiny dust particles between lens elements, uneven lens edge blackening, very minor coating blemishes, or even a very small fine lens scratch or two are very common in this Antares product and must be accepted as normal. However, these will not impact optical performance.
