Posted this a few days ago, would like to get some more opinions.

What is the best 2" barlow to use with my baader zoom, if a barlow can be used succesfully with this at all.

The reason i want a 2" is because i want to get a 2" wide angle ep and maybe use it with that, again i don't know how feasible that is.

I regularly use an Antares 1.6x barlowe with my 2" ep's including the Hyperions without the negative lens group and it's fine. The zoom gets a little faint though as you approach the 8mm setting (effectively 5mm) yielding 300x magnification in the dob - needs a very clear night :(
