For Sale: HighPower 5x Barlow Lens 1.25"
« on: March 31, 2017, 12:33:04 PM »
Hello all.  I bought my first telescope last year and mistakenly bought this 5x Barlow 1.25" which turned out to be way over-powered for my 8" Dobson. I paid $150 at Orion for it and wish to sell it for $100. I live in San Francisco in SOMA.

Not being aware of needing different eyepieces I only have the 25mm that came with the scope. Obviously I was disappointed viewing planets as tiny dots, but now know I need other eyepieces. Am willing to trade the Barlow for an eyepiece/eyepieces which will give me a much better view of the planets or possibly deeper space objects.

Thanks,

Dennis
