Thank you.

Probably to get a different larger power range with the given barlows. Also less back focus would be needed. If I'm off base what else would be new? :shrug: Mike

Well glad you asked as I have been looking for something like this! Right now I can't get my WO BV ti work in my 10"DOB. I tried adding the included 1.6x barlow to get it to focus, but still no good. Maybe this extender screwed into the 1.6 nose will do the trick?
