The new Baader Q-Turret Eyepiece Set

Baader Planetarium of Gremany had recently released a new line of ortho eyepieces - the Baader Classic Orthos in a set that includes a quad-turret & a 2.25x modular barlow. See my review of the Q-Turret Eyepiece set by clicking on the link below:

Nice turret. Is the modular 2.25x barlow lever switch below the turret? How's much back focus needed on Newtonian reflector n refractor?

Sorry for the late reply. The barlow cell element from the 2.25x barlow screws on to the filter thread at the bottom of the turret, there is no switch. The turret works fine on the SCT scope, but will not come to focus on a William Optics 66m SD or Orion ShortTube 80mm refractors - the barlow element needs to be installed for the scopes to focus properly.
