With the very long focal length I'm a bit curious what you think you need a barlow lens for?

I like the features of the DM-6 or T-Rex - quick setup, no large battery w/cables, push to, plus with Argo Navis or Sky Comander you know where you are in the sky coordinate wise. How does it work at high magnification, 250X an up? Still very easy to move/keep the object in the FOV? If I'm gonna be looking at a particular object, say Jupiter for an hour+ long, would it be worth it to go motorized tracking or are you good w/push to. Reason for barlow question - will be getting a fast refractor for widefield and didn't know if it is worth while to use w/Mewlon. Guess I should have asked if anyone uses the 1.6x extender and is it worth it for better eye relief versus a high mag eyepiece.
Thanks for the AZ EQ6 suggestion.
