Hello, can I install this lens on my Sky-Watcher BK P1145Q1 (with 10 mm or 25 mm eyepieces)? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk 5x Barlow Lens fits your telescope, but we don't recommend using it: in combination with 10 mm eyepiece the highest practical power of your telescope will be exceeded while in combination with 25 mm eyepiece it will only be 100x. To achieve the highest practical power of your telescope we recommend the following combination: Levenhuk Plossl 6.3 mm Eyepiece https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-plossl-6-3mm-eyepiece/ and Levenhuk A3x Barlow Lens https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-a3x-barlow-lens/. This combination allows you to get the magnification of 238x.
I have Sky-Watcher BK P1145Q1 and two eyepieces: 10 mm and 25 mm. Will this lens be of any use to me? Levenhuk Customer Service:
If you use Levenhuk 5x Barlow Lens with 10 mm eyepiece, you will exceed the highest practical power of your telescope. On the other hand, with 25 mm eyepiece the magnification will only be 100x. We recommend using the following combination: Levenhuk Plossl 6.3 mm eyepiece https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-plossl-6-3mm-eyepiece/ + Levenhuk A3x Barlow Lens https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-a3x-barlow-lens/.

Hi! Does Levenhuk 5x Barlow Lens fit Celestron NexStar 90 SLT telescope? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk 5x Barlow Lens is suitable for any telescope with 1.25" barrel diameter, but, it's important to keep in mind, which eyepieces you are going to use with it.
Can I use it with Celestron AstroMaster 90 Az, together with 10 and 20 mm eyepieces? Or image quality will also suffer? I want choose the best lens and place an order already. Levenhuk Customer Service:
The barrel diameter of this Barlow Lens allows you to use it with your telescope. But I should notice that by using this Barlow Lens with 10 and 20 mm eyepieces you will exceed the highest practical power of the telescope. We recommend considering Levenhuk Plossl 6.3 mm Eyepiece - https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-plossl-6-3mm-eyepiece/
Is this lens suitable for Levenhuk Strike 900 PRO? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, Levenhuk 5x Barlow Lens is suitable for the Levenhuk Strike 900 PRO telescope. When used together with 25 mm eyepiece from the standard kit it will give you the maximum useful magnification.
Eyepieces are fine, but their capabilities are still limited. I see Saturn for instance as a small pea. Astronomical programs at the same time show that with 5x Barlow lens and 4 mm eyepiece it's possible to see detailed images of Saturn... Or will image be distorted too much? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The maximum useful magnification of your telescope is 300x. And with both 4 mm eyepiece and 5x Barlow Lens your telescope will produce 1520x. So yes, unfortunately image quality will be poor and you won't be able to see a thing.
Is this lens suitable for Celestron AstroMaster 70 AZ Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, Levenhuk 5x Barlow Lens is suitable for this telescope model.
Thanks for the quick reply. I usually image without an eyepiece, but connecting the camera directly to the barlow and shooting solely with the telescope optics. I'm not sure if that would change your answer. Levenhuk Customer Service:
Dear Michael, In this case, you need a Barlow lens with T-adapter. We have the Levenhuk 2x Barlow Lens with Camera Adapter in stock only. You can find it here: https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-2x-barlow-lens-with-camera-adapter/ Is there any additional information you might need? Looking forward to your reply.
I have a Celestron Edge 11HD. How would this item perform for planetary imaging with an Imaging Source video camera? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Dear Michael, thank you for interest in Levenhuk products. Unfortunately, the Levenhuk 5x Barlow lens is currently out of stock. But the 5x Barlow lens will not fit your telescope as the highest useful magnification of your telescope is 560x. With the 5x Barlow lens and 23mm eyepiece (which comes with your telescope) it will reach 608x. If you go beyond 560x, image quality will be become poorer and blurred. In order to get the highest useful magnification, you need a 5mm eyepiece. We have a 6.3 mm eyepiece in stock, the magnification will be 445x in this case. You can find the eyepiece here: https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-super-plossl-6-3mm-eyepiece/ Is there any additional information you might need? Looking forward to your reply.

Please tell me if this lens fits Levenhuk Skyline PRO 80MAK Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk 5x Barlow Lens fits any telescope, including Levenhuk Skyline PRO 80MAK.
Good day. I guess this one fits Levenhuk Skyline 70x700, right? will an image be dull and blured with SUPER 25mm (28x)? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk 5x Barlow Lens + 25mm eyepiece + Levenhuk Skyline 70x700 telescope altogether provide the magnification of 140x. The image won't be blurred but you have to keep in mind that the only way to get the clearest and high-quality images is by using an eyepiece alone, without any Barlow lenses. In your case consider using the Levenhuk Ra LER 5 mm eyepiece: https://www.levenhuk.com/products/eyepiece-levenhuk-ra-ler-5/
Does it make sense to attach it to Dicom n800203 eq4? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk 5x Barlow Lens fits any telescope with 1.25" barrel diameter. So attaching it or not depends on eyepieces you own, more exactly on how much x you want to get.
How do I use Barlow lens? Can I attach it to meade starnavigator 90mm? Levenhuk Customer Service:
