I have had my Orion 127mm on a SkyView Pro mount for a week now and am using a Celestron Omni 2x Barlow on it with no problems. I realize this isn't the same barlow you were asking about however there wouldn't be any problem inre the scope hitting the mount or anything like that.
Hope that may have helped.

I just sold both my newts, and am thinking of getting an orion 127mm mak. Can I use my shorty plus barlow on this scope? or any of the smaller maks?
No problem! I use the Ultima 2x with mine, but mostly for imaging the moon and planets....

You can always use a focal reducer to increase your field of view, independant of use a 32mm or 40mm eyepiece to increase the field.
