Price: $168.00
Design: Barlow with a negative achromat and a second correcting doublet
Description: High quality "Barlow" with full field illumination and fully coated optics.

Review

Supposedly not a true Barlow. It has full field illumination and does not change the eyepiece's eye relief.

In my observations I have found no introduced chromatic or any other aberrations (as if it isn't really there).

My delightful 19mm Panoptic now becomes my delightful 3.8mm Panoptic.

Nothing out there better (I've been there).  Strongly recommended.
