      4.0 Intes 2.4x Barlow


      Sharp optics. A keeper.


      Overly snug tube. Captive screw doesn't want to stay captive.


      I don't know if this is the same as the 2x barlow, but the 2.4x barlow is better known, at least to me.

      This was the first quality barlow lens that I acquired, as part of a Russian 5" Mak-Cass scope package. I compared it to a 2x GTO barlow, and eventually gave the GTO away.

      When I sold the Mak, I had to sell the barlow with it. But I have since then replaced the barlow with another of the same.

      Only minuses: the lens tube is a bit snug. An eyepiece might have to be worked in and out. Also the captive screw that holds the eyepiece more snug has a very fine line between being loose enough to remove the eyepiece and the screw falling out altogether. Quirky Russian mechanics?

      5 stars for optics, minus 1 star for mechanics.
