One is a barlow lens with a T adapter built into it, the other looks like an ordinary T adapter for a camera. The barlow lens will help magnify what you're looking at, although it's achromatic and probably not all that good.

It would have helped if images were sharper..

Fist one is Barlow, obviously.
The second one looks like adapter from T-mount to Canon (or other bayonet mount) camera.
The third one may be field corrector..

Only guessing..

The 1st one is cloud filter, to eliminate any adverse effects cloud might have during imaging. The 2nd is a resolution improver, effectively increaseing the resolution of any camera attached by 10, ie a webcam will have the same resolution as an ST11k. And the last is is a photon mutiplier, which increases the effective apature of a scope by 8, so a 3" refractor behaves like a 24" RC.

Well the second and third item are one and the same, so I guess multi-functions are pretty cool.

Does that mean I can sell it for heaps like $2k because that sounds really useful.

Id say, they would each be worth at least 10k, possibly much more

yeah, we wish
Jin, wouldn't worry too much about them unless or until you get into imaging. Suggest you look up T ring or T adaptor to get comparitive pricing. Unless they're solid gold or platinum, you won't get $2K

Fred...c'mon...let's not get too carried away here

Mind you, I wouldn't mind my barlow being a high resolution multispectral analyser, proxy mass driver and strip miner, cos' I'd make a killing on all those I class asteroids that pass by every now and then. Just think of all that platinum and iridium!!!!....make Bill Gates look like a pauper

What? But Fred said they were at least 10k, I don't understand. Isn't 2k reasonable for something that's 10k new. I already shouted the entire pub a round....I thought I'd gotten a bargain

Fred just made me choke on the sandwich I was eating!

Classic!

Thanks for the laugh. Made me feel better.

Cheers
