    Sorry to bug ya but did you get to try that 2" barlow out from owl optics ? I just bought an 1.8x barlow fully multi coated blackened edges brass lock ring, and its all metal no plastic and all black for $21.00, so now all I need is mother nature to cooperate.Next week I'm hoping to score an 15mm ep,thats all for now thanks...speedfreak.

    No Worries Speedy ... how about a "Kinda" and a "Not yet" ... lol ... I dropped a 1.25 adapter into it and it rocks ... along with a 2" dielectric diagonal I had picked up ... both of them in my 90mm and I am liking life ... I don't know it there really is any dramatic improvement, or just "new-toy-itis" ... lol ... I am looking forward to popping in a 32mm 2" that I have my sights on ...

    ... I will say this ... I have a strong suspicion that these parts are all coming out of the GSO factory and being "branded" under different names ... I could be very wrong ... but I dunno ...
