Just wanted to update this spread. Last night I tried to use the WO BV with the 1.6x barlow in my 10" Dob and it would not come to focus. Than I removed the 1.6x and inserted a 2x barlow and that didn't work either.

Next I tried the Denk2 PS and that would not come into focus straight through or with either of the arms inserted.

Now what?

Try removing the extension tube, and put the 1.6x and-or-the 2x "lens" only in it's place. Ought to be able to unscrew the lens from the end of the barlow tube.

If you are talking about removing the nose piece from the BN, the 1.6 barlow threads are different size and don't fit.

I checked WO website and they have an extension tune they sell to help get to focus, but still not sure it would work. May have to send them an email about it. I don't know what the big deal is with this focus issue is as they sell thousands of these BV and many are probably being used in reflector scopes like mine??
