Don't Buy A Cheap Barlow

I don't have experience with either of the two products you mention. However, I do have many Televue products, and they are all superb, including a Televue Barlow. Their Powermate is a step up even from that.
I have owned two cheap Barlows, and they led me to believe for two decaces that Barlows were worthless trash. I then bought Celestron's best Barlow, and it is worth owning. And Televue's is worth owning.
Don't buy cheap. You'll regret it. You won't regret owning anything Televue sells, if my experience with 3 of their eyepieces and their Barlow is any indication.
