Help with focal Reducer
      #5655807 - 02/01/13 08:37 AM

Ok I know there have been lots of treads of this subject, but how do you use a Focal reducer with two inch eyepeices. I have a Meade 10 SCT and a zummall crawford fousers on it and I can,t figure how to get the FR to mount to the crawford. ??? I screwed the FR to the back of the sct but how do you get the fouser to fit.......

After you screw on the FR the threads are the same size as on the back of the scope and then need an OTA to screw into that and then the diagonal into that.

BTW...I did not get to good results using 2" WA EP's in my 8" SCT. I think there made mainly for AP and using 1.25" EP 32mm and below?
