1.25" extention tube

Hi, as listed above I'm chasing a 1.25" extension tube or as suggested by another poster, a 1.25" barlow measuring 50mm long

Thanks
Aaron

Aaron,

One way to get a 1.25" extension tube is to remove the lens from a barlow. The resulting empty, lens-less tube is nothing more than an extension tube

Different barlows also have different length bodies, so you can find a wide range if "extension tubes" this way

Alex.

Do you have a barlow? Do you require it for your purposes? If you need to get one, a cheap barlow will do the job, just male sure it isn't a plastic body. Or someone hete may have a cheap barlow and you can expand the search parameters of your ad. Purpose made extension tubes can be stupidly expensive bought new.

Yes, I do already have a Barlow but can't achieve enough back focus with the camera I have.
