I understand that the optically active element of the VIP-Barlow is the 2.6x glass-path-corrector lens referenced "4C" in the T2 system. Is that correct ? If not, Is the active element for sale alone ?

Hello: I just buy a baader vip Barlow. I have used it with 1,25” connection (in scope and camera). Results are perfect. Congrats for the product
I would like to use now in a 2” scope and in a reflex camera and I don’t know how to do it.
Is there any schematic to see the way to do it.
On the other hand, I would like to know the explanation about modules of the Barlow. On instructions included in the box, I don’t have in a clear way utilities of each module.
Thank you in advance for your help

Hi: I purchased an Explore Scientific 82° 30 mm Eyepiece and am looking for a good Barlow. After doing a lot of research I discovered the VIP. I love how versatile it is! However, this eyepiece is a 2” behemoth (weighs a kilo), so I was wondering if the VIP is a good choice for this application? Thanks!

Modular Barlow with 1¼" and 2" barrel

High quality optics with apochromatic characteristics, for magnifications of 2x and above

  • Modified by Roland Christen for US-American glasses
  • modular construction for visual and photographc (VIP) use
  • Fits into 1¼" and 2" focusers
  • Designed for 35mm-film (ideal for full-frame-DSLRs with 24x36mm-sensors)
  • Higher magnifications can be achieved easily by adding additional T-2 extension tubes

The housing contains the following parts from the T-2™-System: #15/#29/#25a/#25a/#14
