2x Deluxe Barlow

Recommended Posts

Just a quick one if I may -

I took delivery of my first scope on Monday - SW Exp 200p on EQ5.

On the FLO site it states that the 200p comes with a 2x Deluxe Barlow whereas the 150p just reads 2x Barlow - is there a difference?

My box just has 2x Barlow on the side so I don't know if I have received the correct one.....?

The 1.25" Skywatcher de luxe barlow is a standard 2-element barlow and looks like this:

Skywatcher - Skywatcher Deluxe 2x Barlow

There is a non de luxe version which I've seen supplied with a lower price Skywatcher scope. It looks similar but the lens portion could not be unscrewed on that one and the optical quality was much poorer IMHO than the de luxe - it may even have been just a single lens (non achromatic).

It's the 2" 2x barlows that have an ED lens element.
