Some outstanding optics here and not too pricey. Take a look and see if these work for your needs. I particularly LIKE the 9mm ortho when used in some of my past apochromats.

Meade 1.25" 2x barlow with original bottom cap. This is multicoated and is the 1st generation of their take on the "shorty 2". This is a very late 1980s model. Later on you'd see these marked "Taiwan" right about the time of the very first ETX90s. Today they are manufactured in China.
Beautiful-performing barlow and because of its stout design, it will work well with focuser that have minimal travel. It is very apt at cooperating with small cassegrain observing needs.
Cosmetics and optics are very excellent with no need to dust any part of it. Hard to find them this clean anymore. $38.00

Meade 1.25" 9mm orthoscopic with both original caps. Beautiful, multicoated optics that will definitely give you a crisp view of Jupiter's GRS with a finely-made (and required aperture size) refractor. I used it carefully in a few of my C4.5 also. I say "carefully" because this was part of my personal collection of vintage eyepieces.
So as the photos show, this example of a late '80s Meade ortho is in rather prime condition. Cosmetics are minty as far as I can see. Optics are very excellent-to-mint. If you're looking for one of these classics to go with your vintage 2045, 2080, or 2120, (not to forget the Professional Grade 6 and 8 with the Mizar mounts), you've found a GREAT example. $48.00

Celestron 1.25" Ultima 2x barlow with both original caps, has original set screw, and box. Mint upper body, excellent chrome barrel, and very excellent optics. No need to attend to any part of it prior to enjoyment. These barlows, with their benchmark-quality, need no introduction as to their performance. $53.00

Prices don't include shipping. Happy to ship to anyone on the planet!
