Which Barlow to Purchase

Post by Riptide110 »

I picked up Zhumell Z10 10" Dobsonian back in April and now looking to get a barlow for it. There are hundreds of different opinions on cloudy nights forum on the brands to purchase. Televue being the most dominant, but not sure I am ready to drop $300+ for a barlow. Are there any midrange ones out there that you all can recommend? I have read where a cheap one is like throwing money away. I am looking for a 2'' 2x. Thanks for the response.

Once this passes over and we get back to some sort of normalcy, my daughter and I will be joining the club. She has taken the most interest in the telescope and the sky over my other children. Hope to meet some new people and get into a new hobby.

Apparently 2' barlows are the "craze" right now along with bikes and workout equipment. Every site I have visited has the 2 inch barlows sold out or only the $300+ available. Used ones on forums are sold within minutes. Hopefully manufacturing gets going to produce more.
