Barlow

I use a skywatcher Barlow for observing the sun and so far I find it very good, likewise the RVO Barlow from Rother Valley Optics but I suspect it’s rebadged but don’t know who makes the original

I suspect the RVO Barlow could be the same rebadge. The bees knees is a teleview but they are not cheap
