Yes, there is a shorty 2" barlow. The 1.5x Gary Russell is a shorty, and is quite nice. The only drawback is that it requires about 1" of in-travel of the focuser, vs. where an eyepiece by itself comes to focus. If you don`t have that much in-travel to spare, don`t try this barlow (unless you are willing to move your primary mirror forward a bit).
