TeleVue Barlow 3x
Got to use this for the first time 3 nights ago. When coupled to a 15mm and 20mm TV plossls it provided 244x and 183x. Best view I have ever seen of Saturn in my 8" dob. Brighter than my 7mm alone with greater contrast and much sharper to boot. I feel it took nothing away from the image.

Very sharp and crisp with all my eyepieces. My 16mm Konig and my 20mm and 15mm Plossls are exceptional with the scope working at f20. To be able to attach filters is really handy for planetary observing. Easy to switch eyepieces in and out to find the best magnification for the observing conditions. Only a TV Powermate would be better and not by very much.

When used with older 15 mm Televue wide Field eyepiece the images are as good as Pentex 5mm

My comment was the first one made but I didn't register a vote at that time. Now I'm voting and it's still a 10.

Got this on eBay for half price. Used with my 30mm-32mm plossls, it gives me 10mm with lots of eye relief. I can drop a 2x barlow element into it for 5x. Equivlent to 6mm. I don't use my zoom any more.

Does wonders with my 8" f/8, really helping when I boost the power up for the planets. Well made, the coating also seems durable as I am not one to "baby" my equipment, and I have had this for probably a dozen years. DMH, Kinsman, Ohio

Very sharp and contrasty clear to the edge with excellent, even light through-put. Experienced observer with 6" F7 Newt.,1010mmFL w/ excellent optics. I use 20mm and 15mm Antares plossls and 13mm and 10.5mm TV plossls for high power. They give 150x, 202x, 233x and 289x respectively. Mild vignetting but not a problem with planets. Solid construction and you can unscrew the lens cell for cleaning. Threaded for filters; great feature as it allows quick switching back and forth of eyepieces and recesses lenses in for better protection. Sharper views than with single low FL eyepeices. And much better eye relief. Comparison of 15mm w/Barlow and 5mm Radian: sharpness and contrast equal, Radian had bigger field and a little more ER. Best $105 I've spent. I rate it a 10!
