  21. I use an Antares 1.6x barlow 2" fitting with my Ethos 13,the quality of the barlow is very goood only downside is it`s not a compresion fit,i was recommended this barlow by loads of Obsession users in the states and am well pleased with the views, i`m sure there was a reason for this barlow over 2x but cannot remember what i`m sure you would not be dissapointed if you go with this recommendation.
