Meade 0.8x 3" Series 6000 Flattener/Reducer

For astrophotographers using Meade 115 mm and 130 mm Series 6000 APO Refractor telescopes, this fully multi-coated, 3-element Meade Focal Reducer and Field Flattener helps them capture wide field night sky photographs. This flattener was made to expand the field of view with the camera being used by reducing the Meade Series 6000 APO Refractor focal length. In addition, this flattener optically flattens the image and reduces vignetting, yielding razor sharp stars all the way to the edge of your photographic frame. This device removes distortion within the field of view by fixing spherical aberration. With the majority of refractors, deep-sky objects are too large and too troublesome to be contained within the field of view. However, with this Meade Reducer/Flattener, this issue is resolved by reducing the focal length 0.8x to increase the field of view of your refractor. Included M48x0.75 outside diameter thread enables simple camera attachment. 2" nosepiece allows the Flattener itself to be connected to your telescope.
