Astrotech 0.8x reducer/flattener compatibility new
      #5946618 - 06/29/13 01:42 PM

Does anybody know if this works with a stellarvue SV90T refractor? It is supposed to perform in the f5.5 to f7 range, and the SV90T is f7... But I'd rather hear from you folks if this combination works. I'm looking to speed up the scope a titch being in a high LP area, plus the flattening requirement for AP use with this scope.

Thanks for your thoughts!

I'd search for it on Astrobin and send individual users who use it the email. I did that when I was thinking about buying my ST-10XME. Worked really well .

I use the AT2FF for my AT6RC and any of my refractors SW100ED f/9 and ED80 f/6. with an Atik 314L+ mono. No problems!

I guess I could've added that I use mine on an Orion ED80 and it works great too. Nice flat fields.

Excellent, thanks for the info, I tried searching on astrobin, but it only turned up in two images =). I think it should work and I suppose I can always return it if not! I appreciate the responses!

Here is the search I did. I typed in 'AT2FF' and came up with all of these. Another option is to find one with the device in question and click on the device. They're all linked and will do a search for pictures listing that equipment. See link below:

Good luck!

I can't help you with the Astro Tech 0.8x unit but can tell you that the 2" ATFF works very well without any spacers on the SVR90T. I would be interested in the 0.8x unit and have been waiting for someone to act as a guinea pig !

Cheers,Ed

Thanks for the answers folks, I emailed astronomics in addition, and they responded that they believe that it should work =). For that price, I'm pretty tempted to try it out!
