Congratulations. Having good eyepieces can make observing a pleasure and certainly reduces the frustration of not seeing what you know should be there. In using your new eyepieces, start to compare the results you get when using the Barlow and not using the Barlow with a shorter focal length eyepiece such that the power being used is about the same. Note which view is more comfortable and determine whether the increased eyerelief with the longer eyepiece/Barlow combination helps. This will help you down the line when you next decide to add to your eyepiece collection.

Jarvis Krumbein,
