    Question Barlow question?



    So I am near to buying my first Barlow lens, but I have a question. I was researching prices and different companies, also read the thread on Barlow comparison, and wanted to know if I would benefit from buying the 3-element version over the regular one? I have a 8" dob. Any suggestions would be great. Thank you.

    Hey there if you want to eventually do astrophotography try to get the several lens version (apochromatic) so that you can get some nice shots

    I love my cheap GSO 2X apo barlow, there are some more expensive higher quality barlows that some of the other members may be able to recommend

    cheers
