You 300PDS is a bit of a wopper, and will be great for planets. Try not to be tempted with bigger magnification as what actually happens it you get less sharpness and less light the higher you go. Be happy with the lower magnifications. Also with the magnification of that scope, always start with the lowest power get the target centred and in focus. Have a look and then try to insert a higher power eyepiece and hopefully it will be in the FOV still and try to focus again. A Barlow will double the magnification, but will reduce the sharpness and brightness as I described previously. I never had any success viewing with a Barlow could never find the target again even after being centred.

I am not an expert on types of lenses, as I mainly do imaging.
