Since you have 2 good eps as of now and a 2 x barlow I would recommend a 32mm. I have a whole slew of eps, but really only use the two you mentioned, a 2x barlow and a GTO 32mm ep.

Also, you might consider a 15mm ep.

With those 4 ep's you will have 32mm, 25mm, 15mm, and 10mm. While using the barlow you will also have 16mm, 12.5mm, 7.5mm, and 5mm. That should be more than enough.

You can go with the Orion Sirius Plossl or check out some bargin eps form outfits such as Hands On Optics. The Hands on Optics house brand are called GTO's and usually run approx $35 to $40 each. Check out their web site at Hands on Optics.

I hope that helps
