Magnification Great for the Moon,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celestron Omni 2X Barlow Lens (Electronics)
I wanted to see Mars and a good look at the rings of Saturn. I bought this hoping I could. However, the make and aperature of the telescope you have makes or breaks this lens. It is not a magical looking glass. It did magnify Mars.. so I was able to see a larger white light. I have a Celestron telescope.. but a low end.

going along with Joe's comment, what kind of scope do you have and if it has a front dust cover dose it have a small aperture opening on it like the astromasters do, i put my front cover on last night and had the smaller cap off and was able to see Jupiter no problem, without it all i saw was a bright light so give that a try, you can also cover part of your aperture with some paper if you are using a reflector style scope. hopefully this helps.
