For some reason Celestron has not released FR for 9.25 edge scopes. Does anybody now why? Or should I give up and go to companies like Astro physics and purchase a set up from them.

Thanks

It's coming. Eventually. I suspect the C9.25 unit is a significantly different prescription, since the primary mirrors is significantly slower than in the other three. That's also likely why the corrector elements are so far rearward in the baffle on the C9.25 Edge relative to the others.

Image at native f/10. The field is nice and flat, and then one happy day, a dedicated reducer will arrive. :grin:
