With the selection of eyepieces that you now have, you would get only one more high power combination, that being with the 6.7mm, for an equivalent 3.35mm. The biggest advantage will be in the improved eye relief with all the eyepieces but especially the shorter focal lengths. If you do go for a Barlow, get the Meade Model 140 APO Barlow. It will be as good or better than any other you will come across. Of course if you want really high powers, then something like the Televue 5X might suit you. See if you can find some one who has one though and get a report first.
