  1. Hi cajen2. I just checked x3 barlow and an 8mm ep would give you 281 magnification but your exit pupil would only be 0.53. Dave
  2. Hi cajen2. Can I ask what ep's you would be using in the barlow. I have a ×2 barlow and using an 8.8mm ep would give me magnification of around 350 ,I still new myself and don't know much about your scope but would a x3 barlow be a bit over powering. Dave
