Hi Group, I have a bit of elongated stars on the top corner of the images, having a GM 2000 with RA/DEC encodes, good polar alignment, and my guiding is reasonable good so I cannot see why any elongated stars should appear.

 

Looking around I cannot see a flattener for this telescope, only the reducer and was wandering if anybody is aware if Takahashi actually makes flattener for this scope, or any other supplier if needed.

 

thanks

 

Charles
