Barlow Lens

Postby mpolax on Mon Dec 13, 2004 3:21 pm

I have an old Bushnell Voyager Model 78325 - the manual is not on the Bushnell website.....I wanted to get a 3x Barlow eyepiece for it and assumed it was a 1.25 diameter - but upon inspection it appears that the eyepiece holder is approx 1" making it a .98 I presume. Is there a Barlow made for the .98 model. Another manual on Bushnell's site references "adapter" rings and sounds like the .98 could be fitted with a 1.25 if the holder were different. Am I correct on my sizing? Any ideas?
