Focal Reducer/Corrector 0.63 for Meade and Celestron SCT (Not for HD Series)

An important advancement in high-resolution focal reduction systems, the Meade 4-element, multi-coated f/6.3 Focal Reducer/Field Flattener threads on to the rear cell of any LX90, LX200 or other Schmidt-Cassegrain or Advanced Coma-Free model and is typically used with an Off-Axis Guider or T-Adapter. Reduces the telescope's focal ratio by a factor of 0.63: f/10 telescopes are converted to f/6.3. Simultaneously, the 41mm-diameter lens system helps flatten the field of Schmidt-Cassegrain models, significantly improving edge-of-field corrections.

This handy accessory enables a reduction of photographic exposure times by about 50%, while producing an actual field diameter of 1.5" at the film plane.

Use of this focal reducer is not recommended for 35mm photography or larger CCD chips with Meade Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) models as field correction is not needed.Designed for serious Astro-Imagers. Optimized for the Sky-Watcher BLACK DIAMOND ED120, this superb quality accessory effectively reduces the telescope’s focal length by a factor of 0.85x and provides much improved field-edge correction. Use in conjunction with Sky-watcher’s M48 Sony, Canon or Nikon T-ring adaptors.
