A 2.5x powermate was one of the first accessories I bought... I have owned a 2x barlow, I prefer the powermate.

For one, it is parfocal.. ie: you don't need to refocus when you switch from just an eyepiece to eyepiece plus powermate. Secondly, the powermate is optically far superior to any barlow I have ever owned...

Cheers
