Quote:.....Despite it being marketed for the turret, it is a general-purpose barlow, yes?
Quote:...Slightly OT, are you using the BCO's in your F/5.3 dob without a coma corrector? If so, how are they?
Quote:I got the 10mm BCO today and did some informal daylight viewing comparisons in the XT6 to two Plossls (Orion 10mm, GSO 9mm) and a Meade 9mm HD-60. Transparency, clarity, contrast-wise it's no contest, the BCO is far superior. Barlowing them with a 1.25" GSO, they became much more alike, suggesting that the barlow's "signature" was dominant. Which made me wonder about the Q barlow... if it were more transparent than the GSO, that would be very interesting, indeed...
