Focal Extender or Barlow.  What's the difference? pros and cons??

I'd like to try some astrophotography (lunar / wider field shots) and was curious about extending the magnification of my Meade 6000 80mm APO (450mm).  as you may guess by my rattling off all the specs, i have no idea what i'm doing :) 

i've got a Nikon D600 that i'd like to use and i've got the t-ring and have shot a couple test photos somewhat successfully, so i think i've got most of the gear all set.  and i know about image stacking from some other stuff i've done at work - we use Kolor and i played with Helicon a little, but any software recommendations would be appreciated.

thanks!

For planetary stuff I would say get a barlow, it will help quite a bit. I have a 2x barlow that replaces my t-adapter and I am happy with it. 

And for stacking solar system stuff definitely use registax.

my problem with religion is by and large that parents very often instill thoughts and ideas into their children that are really geared for a much older age group.  this is how brainwashing occurs and ultimately leads to the perpetuation of notions that are no longer relevant.  if you want to raise your child religious, i think you owe it to yourself to teach them about all religions and that people are different all over the world.  why doesn't that happen? because the parents were brainwashed by their own parents.

The Mill City Museum is a neat little museum that's got some really cool old machinery. I recommend the Flour Tower tour where you sit in an old freight elevator that moves between floor and opens onto re-created scenes of the old mill. Sadly, you can't explore these sections or take photos along the Tower tour, but it's still really interesting. The Flour Tower lets you out at the top of the mill (7 or 8 stories up) where you can look around the old vacuum system as well as look out onto the Mississippi and the old Washburn Mill ruins. Down in the lower level, there is more machinery, a live kitchen where they make breads (and perhaps other stuffs), and an interactive "water room" where you can play with a simulated Mississippi and try to control the river in a way to drive a number of water wheels. Overall, the venue is small, but well done. I appreciated that it wasn't crowded and i could take in as much as i wanted. There was also a good presentation of C. C. Washburn that was pretty entertaining as well - it really drove home the magnitude of the mills production in its heyday.

Edit: this bar is really coming into its own. Mike is an amazing bar tender that makes you feel like you're one of the family. Service is still a little slow, and the music has always been a bit on the loud side (given the more "lounge-y" decor) but I haven't given up yet. It's still a great addition to the neighborhood.But it should be noted that I'm a spoiled drinker that throws tantrums if I don't get my alcohol as quickly as possible. So take that with a large grain of salt...or many grains...lightly sprinkled around the rim of a delicious margarita...mmmmm.....tequila..... EDIT: its still really slow. The bartenders are still a bit young - they will sit back at the bar with a drink in their hand and not really realize the patrons' needs ... "Needs" :) anyway, I did get comped on a .75 glass of wine because they finished the bottle, so that helps. Its a good place, you just need a little patience :)

2 for 1 brunch drinks for starters. Had some amazing deviled eggs for easter appetizers. But the honey butter on the pancakes was mind melting. Throw a little compote on there and you'll wonder why you didn't order two servings. (The breakfast sandwich sausage is also really tasty)

Great brunch place (especially if you're into Double-Brunching). Got the burger with a couple fried eggs and stacked it all together - the way it should be. the pickle slices are great, they have a good selection of beers and enough outside space to accommodate decent sized groups. and if you happen to start ordering bottles of champagne, well they accommodate that too. (note that outside service is def slower than inside, but there are a lot of people outside, so be patient :)
