Is the difference between an Orion Shorty and a basic Tele Vue 2x worth the $75 difference in price? Is there a difference at all besides the QC and branding?
I realize value is relative to each person but for the sake of simplicity the questions are posed for general opinions.
*edit Let me make this a better question. Is there another Barlow that is better at a similar or cheaper price point? I personally dont particularly love using a Barlow but I do like doubling my EP set. So it's ultimately worth the compromise. But I'd like to hear any suggestions based on the premise that I use Orion Shorty 2x barlows and find them to be suitable. I have not used another Barlow and I'm wondering if this is a scenario where the difference in quality is marginal, or if it's like using a Nagler vs Orion Expanse type difference. Just looking for a minor upgrade.
Thank you folks!
