Using The Barlow That Came With The DS-114EC System.

Can someone explain to me as to how to use the 3X Barlow that came with the Meade DS-114EC Reflector scope? Without it, I can get a clear picture of the Moon and jupitor. With it, I get a large blur. Do I need to buy a better quality Barlow? I'm using the 25mm lense that came with the set.

I was able to see Jupitor and Saturn. The view of Jupotor with the 4 moons on my old Refractor scope is larger and clearer. How can I achieve the same or better view with this new Meade DS-114EC Reflector scope?

The instructions that came with this system are very poor. With the so called 50% discount, I'm beginning to wander if this scope is really worth the $200.00 that I paid.

Thanks,
