Explore Scientific 3" .7x Focal Reducer & Field Flattener for APO Refractors

The 3-Inch Focal Reducer and Field Flattener by Explore Scientific is a versatile accessory made to augment your astrophotography adventure. As a field flattener, this accessory will take care of annoying edge-of-field aberrations brought about by curved focal planes, resulting in clear, sharp images. As a focal reducer, this accessory will reduce your focal ratio by 0.7 for a wider field of view and increased image illumination in shorter exposure intervals.

Explore Scientific recommended this accessory for their 127 mm and 152 mm APO refractors. Features fully multi-coated optics and comes with a 3-inch Nosepiece, 2 adapters for various focuser sizes and a male T-thread adapter for the camera.

Not used it yet... problems fitting

Adapter does not fit on my 3" FT focuser. I'm having a custom adapter machined at feather touch. (3 weeks) The other end T-adapter on the camera side is disappointing because it's a M42 connection. Those of us needing a 3" FF want all the opening we can get. Why not at least M48? I'll add the necessary adapter and see how it pans out. Goal is to have a unobstructed a full sensor camera fov.
