.... back yard astronomer ================= Don't forget to look at the moon often. Its a play ground of fun if you throttle up the magnification!
Quote:I really don't want to use my scope as a 12" scope. I did that with the Denkmeier Supersystem Low Power arm, and the view was so dim I thought I was looking though a C9.I have no real desire to operate the scope at a 30% light loss penalty.
Jon, I am not sure that we are on the same page here.
What I am talking about is the physical reduction in aperture that occurs when you use a focal reducer and a binoviewer in an SCT.
The mirror has to be moved so far forward to reach focus that the light cone gets cut of.
The scope itself gets turned into a physically smaller apterure.
