I am currently investing in my first real astrophotography rig. I recently bought the Explore Scientific ED102 FCD100 Aluminium telescope and the ZWO ASI1600MM-Pro (plus filter wheel and filters), my mount is an iOptron CEM60. Now i would like to replace the dovetail bar and the tube rigs of the telescope, but i am not sure which tube rings i should buy. Does anyone know if the Stellarvue CNC rings (105mm) or the Moonlite rings for the TAK FSQ106 fit this telescope? Or does anyone have other recommendations?
In addition to the rings i am looking for a field flattener, maybe including a 0.8 reducer. I heard of vignetting issues when using a 2" flattener, so i am searching for a 2.5" one. I thought about the Stellarvue Large Photographic Field Flattener for 2.5" Focusers (SFF3-25-48) but i am not sure about the adaption to my moonlite 2.5" focuser. Is there someone with experience with SV flatteners or someone with another recommendation for a 2.5" flattener (+ eventually 0.8 reducer) for a f/7 102mm triplet refractor?
Thanks for the help!
