    Hello,
    I owned a Televue 2.5X once long ago. Its a hi end barlow & works well with any decent eyepiece Plossel up. I used it in a 7" Maksutov & a 6" refractor, worked great on both however, I never tried it on a dob. They aren't cheap id call or email Televue directly if that's the intention just to be safe. They are pretty tall so its probably ok tho.
    Anything from Televue is 1st class to be honest.

    Yeah, came across many positive feedback too on the PM 2.5x, like being "invisible" as compared to other barlows, so I ordered one and hope to test it soon. Agree with the bit about Televue above, it's like the Hermes/Louis Vuitton of eyepieces, definitely 1st class.

    Best,

    Hernando
