Baader MPCC or Rowe Coma Corrector
      #5689535 - 02/19/13 07:22 PM

Looks like Optcorp has both in stock now. I have a 8 in F4.9 reflector and a Orion Starshoot pro color V2. I would like to get a coma corrector to clean up the edges of my images and for use visually. Will either of these work with my setup? does one work better than the other? I think the ROWE is new.

Again thanks in advance!!

Hi,

First thing that you need to check is if the corrector change the focus plane.

AFAIK the ROWE was designed to provide a generous back focus, so you can accomodate FW, AO, OAG etc. Since you are shooting with an OSC you don't need a lot of back focus, in other words you'll be just fine with the MPCC.

Cheers,

Jose

Been doing some more research, Do I need spacers to get EP to reach proper distance?
