The man says in his included paper on how the Powermate came to be that it is no barlow - one look at the convexed lens of this magnifier will tell you Mr. Nagler has made something special here! The 2" eyepiece finally gets a real power boost! My 24MM at 6MM is amazing. I can't wait to try my 40MM - with nearly twice as large optics - when the clouds of winter finally part. Strong construction is an understatement - it's the best I've seen in a barlow - ah, magnifier.

I bought the powermate at the same time I bought the Televue 13mm. No matter what combination I tried the powermate with it always blurred and darkened. Despite other reviews touting this as superior to the barlow, my 2x barlow works much better.

        Comments about TeleVue 4x Powermate 2 Inch with 1-1/4 Adapter:

        This powermate 4X is incredible. I have a zhummel 12" with a 30mm 2" eyepiece that came with the scope, a 24mm and 18mm explorer scientific and a 9mm zhummel 100 deg fov. I was hessitant because of the 4X, I thought it might b too much, but I have all 2" eyepeices and finally pulled the trigger on it. Views are stunning! You must must must! COLLIMATE your scope and it will not disappoint. I even use my 2x barlow with it believe it or not. Saturn was captivating. With my powermate and my zhummel 2x barlow I have effectively 14 eyepieces! 30mm down to 1.25mm 1200x!!! Which I used on saturn. I wouldnt have done it if my nephew wouldn't have asked me " do we have more power?" I am so exited to open up some globulars and also get some magnification on some galaxies with my wide field eyepieces! PULL THE TRIGGER!!!

          The Product Worked Great other than the Fact I had to Turn the Focus All the Way Out to Make it Work.
