Product Details

  • Antares f/6.3 SCT Focal Reducer

    Focal reducers are very versatile accessories. More powerful focal reducers are limited to photographic use, but the f/6.3 reducer works well visually or photographically. When used visually, they extend the field of view. Eyepieces used with a focal reducer yield lower-power views. Photographically, a focal reducer shortens your exposure time by allowing more light to reach the film or sensor.

    This focal reducer is made to attach to the rear cell of Schmidt-Cassegrain or Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes. Optically, it consists of a four-element lens that is fully multi-coated for high contrast and resolution.

8 inch Meade ACF

Fits like a glove to my Meade. The field of view when using the Tele Vue 32mm plossl increased from 0.8 degrees to 1.27 degrees which is excellent for observing Pleiades for instance. The William Optics binoviewers and Baader zoom work fine separately but it does not focus when WO bw is paired with 2 Baader zooms.

Perfect for imaging with a Mak/Cas

I use this for imaging with my 150 mm F10 Intes-Micro Mak Cas. Unlike Celestron and Meade focal reducers this offers no correction which is perfect for my Mak/Cas since the field of view is flat to begin with.

ANTARES FOCAL REDUCER COATINGS

I agree with previous comment about cleaning a spot on the lens. I tried cleaning a spot from the lens, using Baader optical wonder solution kit, and damaged the, apparently, very delicate coating.

Not suitable for imaging

This focal reducer fitted as advertised and will be good for visual observing, however I am a disappointed with the amount of coma present in the outer edges of images. The centre produces nice crisp round stars gradually degrading toward the edges.

Antares focal reducer coatings

The Antares focal reducer worked satisfactorily to get a wider visual field with my Meade 12 inch LX90. Unfortunately I tried cleaning a spot off from the rear lens, using Mead's recommended lens cleaning solution and plain kleenex, and damaged the, apparently, very delicate coating.
