Does a 2.5 X Barlow or powermate get Jupiter (the whole planet) on the sensor of a DMK21/618 ?
I have a 3X Barlow and it just doesn't fit...
Any suggestions what you guys are using ?
With a C14" F/11 or Meade 14" F/10 ??

Does that 3x Barlow gives 3x or more? Using 2x Meade TeleXtender (fixed magnification) Jupiter fits easily on my DMK with C14. At f/30 it should also fit (but close).
