I use the Baader FFC with my WO FLT98 and Canon 450D. Very happy with it.

Bought mine from Teleskop Service who have it for about 502 Euros which, when all the conversions are done at bank rates, works out to be around 800 AUD currently. Still expensive, but it is pretty nice

Edit: Just to expand a bit more. I was contemplating the same question as you Rusty a few months back but decided to go with the Baader FFC over a barlow or powermate because of the flexibility you get with magnification simply by adding/removing extension tubes. In the case of using a DSLR, that means anywhere from around 2.5x - 8x. Handy for all sorts of imaging/viewing.
