I was having a look at the barlow TV but I read in the forum posts that someone has problems with a central reflection.
maybe I have to orient myself on cheaper barlows?
do you have any model you prefer and have you tried?

I have a Celestron 2x Barlow Ultima that is very good, a 3x Televue Barlow which is excellent and also a Astro Engineering AC555 magnimax 1.6x threaded Barlow which is brilliant.

My 2.5x Televue Powermate is rubbish.
