Thanks for posting that buyer's guide.

 

I am looking for a 1.25" 2x power Barlow lens. I recently tried connecting my telescope to my DSLR and was unable to focus.

A Barlow lens will bring my focal plane out to my camera's sensor.

 

I was hoping someone might have an extra one they're not using that they'd donate to a new stargazer.

 

I will check out your buyer's guide too though. Thanks for posting that!

FWIW After reading a decent review for a VITE 2x barlow on these forums, I just purchased an apparent Svbony clone of it. It has an integrated T thread and was about half the price of a Celestron equivalent. Purchased from Amazon.

Thanks for this fabulous data set!

 

If anyone is interested, I made an interactive visualization based on this data that I've found useful in sorting through the catalog. You can play with it here, and read a bit more about it on my

blog.

Very nice.

One bug: when you turn off Zoom eyepieces, all eyepieces disappear.

Hmm... it works for me. What exactly did you click?

 

To see only zooms, you should have "True" turned one. To see only non-zooms, you should have "False" turned on. If you clicked "All", you turned both off, so you'd see nothing.

 

Let me know if that's not the behavior you're seeing. Although I think I can improve that selector as well. In any case, thanks for the feedback.
