Quote:I would suggest that a focal reducer is very helpful on any f10 SCT.The MFR-5 is a good choice, as is a Meade f3.3. If you want to try an inexpensive model consider one of the .5x 1.25" models. These won't provide quite as good optical quality but will allow you to gain some experience with a focal reducer. If you already have an SCT f6.3 focal reducer you may also try using that with the .5x reducer, that combination can give you very fast reduction (under f4 and sometimes down close to f3) but the optical quality probably won't be as good as the high end models (the MFR-5/Meade f3.3/Optec .3x).
