The other options: move your primary up tube,or insert/stack two or three empty filter bodies between 1.6x corrector and bino end, or WO have the options of a) an extender(same function as stacking filter bodies) b) an alterative 2x corrector. If you go with the "options" there is the downside of substantially increased magnification which may not be desirable.

A 2x Powermate and 20mm eyepieces is around 150x, but this will be nearly ideal on a 12" on the Moon and planets on most nights. I use 160x on my own 12" most of the time.

I'm not familiar with the way the 2x Powermate works that Thomas suggested, so I can't comment one way or the other.
