Although, this isn't a huge number compared to using some of the larger scopes, I think I could be quite happy with images that I would attain. It does cause me to have a lot of questions in my mind -
- Does this make sense??
- How long of an extension tube will I need to achieve focus? Will it be larger than the one I use for my 2x Barlow?
- Because I am starting on bright images, with an F6 tube and a guided mount, will there be any problem with "enough" exposure?
- Should I just bight the bullet and look at and afocal setup? This would come with a whole new string of questions for me.
I know, I know - too many questions (and I probably missed the important ones). Any thoughts, input,experience, would be appreciated. Oh, and one more, if this does make sense, any suggestions on an affordable, reasonable quality product.

I presently am using a 2" diagonal and my other Barlow is 2" at 2x. When should I be pursuing 2" pieces and when not? Comments??

I would be interested in any additional experience or recommendations out there on using 5x barlows.

I use it with success with TV 24 Panoptics and a Baader Hyperion Zoom 8-24.
