I believe your scope is a 60mm (2.4"). I think. Anyway what you were describing sounds like a 3x Barlow lens or it is a variable 2x-3x Barlow. This magnifies two & three times the power of an eyepiece. The 20 & 15mm will probably be OK, but the 10mm and 4mm on a 60mm scope is practiclly useless. The moon and a few planets like Jupiter & Saturn will be OK I guess. You should see the Orion Nebula OK also. Anyway good luck!!
