I do not recommend exceeding much more than 150x in any 114mm scope if you expect any image quality. Not recommended. Single biggest beginner mistake is using too much magnification and a 5x barlow in that telescope would put you over what that telescope could comfortably handle in terms of magnification with almost any eyepiece short of a very low power eyepiece, such as a 40mm. Stay with a 2x or get a larger scope.
