Hi,

I'm after a second hand barlow for use with my 8" dob for afocal photography purposes.

Anyone got one they can part with? I'm in Melbourne.

many thanks

Nick

Bintel Melb have GSO 1.25" 2x FMC barlows for $39. I have one and it works very well. Only flaw is some reflective surface that throws glare when a bright object is just outside the FOV. Would be easy to fix with a bit of flockling paper and/or matte black paint.
