Here are 2 solutions. One is very expensive ($793!)but looks very interesting:

Follow links from here: http://www.astro-physics.com/index.h...ducts/products

Baader Fluorite Flatfield Converter Barlow (BPFFC)

or

2" Advanced Convertible Barlow (BARADV) ($250)

I've used the 2" AP barlow with my KAF8300 CCD and it works very well. You can adjust the power somewhat by moving in/out. I took this photo of M83 using it with my TEC140:

and M16

TAK also has a good photographic barlow at 1.6X.

I would think you need 2" to avoid vignetting. Personally I'd go with one of these over your standard barlows.
