If you are imaging stars, focal ratio theoretically makes no difference and in practice makes hardly any difference, so for things like the jewel box, use any method you find good to increase the focal length. It is only for imaging extended objects--nebulae, galaxies, planets etc that you need to worry about focal ratio.
