Japanese-made, this is a vintage, used, long-format 2x Barlow with 1.25-inch barrel. The glass is completely clean, and the body shows very little marks due to age and use. 

Although this is the original stock Barlow that came with an 80s-era Celestron 8-inch orange-tube SCT, it will not work with a modern diagonal due to the format of its extended barrel.  The silver portion of the barrel is the standard 1.25'' width of all eyepieces.  However, the black part of the barrel that contains the optics immediately below the silver part measures only 1.18''.  Therefore, this will not sit securely in a modern diagonal.  We have taken this into consideration in the pricing.   

However, it will work just fine in a newtonian's/dobsonian's focuser, as the silver part of the Barlow will fit perfectly into the focuser and be grabbed by it.  

The optics are in excellent condition.  Top dust cap only, no box.  Weight: 5 oz.
