SkyWatcher 2x barlow
Ouch! This one hurts... This is a sad "one lens thing" that comes (or used to) with most entry level SkyWatcher/Synta telescope. It adds abberations to all my eyepieces, such as color fringe, astigmatism, "fuzziness" (even when I'm on axis); you name it.

Quickly replace it with just about any other Barlow, can't be worst! But may I suggest Celestron Ultima? Otherwise you could get rid of your telescope or EPs thinking they've got problems. This Barlow is to blame! :-)

It works but makes for soft & fuzzy images. Porbably one of the first "upgrades" to a skywatcker scope would be to buy a gooder barlow, like the celestron ultima or a teleview powermate.

Inexpensive 2x shorty barlow included with scope, seems to work OK with 25mm eyepiece but view is very soft looking with the 10mm eyepiece.
Added feature is it has a built in t-therad for camera attachment.
