I am completely new to astronomy so this question will probably be both easy and a bit dumb. I recently received a Celestron travel scope 70, a fairly weak telescope for a good price in my opinion. I am happy with what it does so far, but I have the possibility of getting a barlow lens (x3) to use with it.
Now my question is wether this lens is even usefull in the first place. I heard that trying to squeeze too much power out of fairly weak telescopes just leads to problems. The travel scope 70 has a 70mm aperature and a focal lenght of 400mm. I have 4 eyepieces. A 4mm one, a 10mm one, and a 20mm one.
I don't know if these specifications are of any help, but here they are anyway.
Thank you for your time!

There are no such people on this forum. People can ask the most basic questions without fear
