Reply: Focal reducer
Can you tell me what would be the best Focal Reducer for a Maksutov Cassegrain 1550x127mm F12.2 telescope? If there is one for this scope, would there be a noticable difference with a larger feild of view?
My scope is the(Bushnell NorthStar GoTo 1550x127mm) Wth the F6.3or the F3.3 Focal reducer wich would give me a wider FOV?if there is one avaliable for my scope which would give me better views? (Ido not know the size of the rear cell on my telescope) If there is one for Bushnell NorthStar can you please tell me the model number.
Sorry, we don't carry and don't have a source for a focal reducer that will fit that rear cell size of 45mm. Standard Schmidt-Cassegrains are 50mm and will not fit.
