Handy little tool, it works great. I'd give it 5 stars if the tip were a bit smaller. The higher powered, smaller mm lens were smaller than the cleaning tip and had to use the edge to clean. It is much easier to clean the lens of an eyepiece with this tool than a microfiber cloth alone. For me a 15mm and larger was a great cleaning tool. If you're careful with your eyepieces, the brush end is really all you'll use, but if you happen to get a finger print or other smudge on the eyepiece lens, this tool will sure render it spotless and clear again.
This 3x Barlow is an OK value for the money. I would have liked to have had a clamp ring feature instead of just a setscrew to prevent misalignment of the eyepiece, but what can you expect for the price? I would recommend this product for those willing to accept the compromises.
This tripod is sturdy enough to hold a small to medium refractor reasonably steady, and is easy to use. It compares favorably with similar but higher priced models of other brands that I have used.
This is a high quality barlow lense. When used with your telescope and normal eyepiece you get a trippling of magnification. Most useful for EP's 24mm and larger. A 30mm EP becomes a 10mm with use of the barlow. The look and feel of the barlow are both high quality. Make sure you have a sturdy mount for the scope, owing to the increased weight.
