2x Barlow and Collimator

Hey all.

Can anyone recommend me a 2x Barlow? Been looking at the Celestron Omni 2x Barlow, willing to spend up to around $60.

Also a collimator, up to around $50.

I cannot post a wanted add because I haven't been a member for more than 30 days yet. Would love to grab a collimator second hand as well as a digital camera adapter.

Hi Stefan
Is this for your Celestron 130? I believe this is a newt? If so you really don't need a laser, just a collimating dust cap (I am not sure in Bintel still sell these.) or a film canister with a hole punched in the base.

With barlows, as with all optics, the rule is you get what you pay for, personally I would get good quality eyepieces first.
