Antares Reducer new
      #6107355 - 09/29/13 12:07 PM

Does anyone have any experience or insight on the Antares f/6.3 focal reducer compared to Celestron or Meade versions? It's significantly less expensive but I don't want to sacrifice quality, it's not that expensive a component to begin with.

I have one and I am very happy with it.
From what I've read previously there is not much difference between the three types.

It acts as both a reducer and corrector. I have one permanently screwed to the back of my 6SE.
I like it.

I have one that never leaves my C8. As stated, it also corrects.
