    Default Barlow upgrade?



    Hello, I just have a Q about my current barlow and whether or not it would be wise to upgrade. I am currently looking at ugrading to a f/5 10" reflector and have an Orion shorty 2x barlow. Just wondering if it would make a considerable difference to look at a TV 2x 1.25" or at the Orion 3x 2" barlow for a replacement. Not big on the 3x but it would be useful with 1.25" eyepieces as well. Thanks for any advice! Tony

    Thank ya Andy! Yeah, right on about tossing money around. Doesn't take long to see accessories adding up. I've been wondering why Orion doesnt have the Shorty Plus 3 element available anymore too? Seems like it was a hit with everyone. Tony
