A bit after the horse has bolted this as I have already ordered one but has anyone got one of these and what are there own opinions.

I have read lots of good about these so feel it should be a good purchase but the info was historic so just wondered if there is anything new out there.

I bought simply because the price was excellent at £50 and I did not want to miss it.

On a side note I do have a Celestron Ultima but I have also read this is more like a 2.25 barlow and although this might still be useful, it is not what my research has been conducted around, hence me getting a genuine 2x quality model.

If it is the older, short, Japanese-made 3-element barlow, it is identical to the Celestron Ultima, Parks Gold Series, Antares Elite, Baader Eudiascopic, Tuthill, Omcon Ultima, etc.

They were private-labeled to about 20 companies back in the '80s and '90s.  And it is a good barlow.  I still use one in my TeleVue NP-101.
