Meade 2" Series 6000 Reducer/Flattener with 3 Elements

This Meade Focal Reducer and Field Flattener features a fully multi-coated, three element design to aid the astrophotographer in taking wide-field night sky images with Meade Series 6000 APO Refractors. The purpose of this flattener is to reduce the focal length of Meade Series 6000 APO Refractors in order to broaden the field of view with the camera being used. It also optically flattens the image by diminishing vignetting as well as by enabling razor sharp stars to your photographic frame's periphery. This Meade Reducer/Flattener corrects spherical aberration by removing distortion within the field of view. Deep sky targets can frequently be too big to fit in the field of view for most refractors, but with this Meade Reducer/Flattener, this problem is solved by reducing the focal length 0.8x to enhance your refractor's field of view. Included M42x0.75 outside diameter thread allows easy camera attachment. The Flattener itself connects to your telescope via the 2" nosepiece. This 3-Element 2" Field Flattener is made to be used with the 80 mm Series 6000 ED APO Triplet Refractor Telescope.
