Anyone have an ES ED127 with 2.5" Hexfocus?

And for bonus points, do you have the ES (Explore Scientific) .7x focal reducer. I am trying to determine the correct backfocus for the reducer and am getting conflicting information. Thanks!
I just got the ES ED127 FCD100 CF. I do not have the focal reducer yet.
I'm using a DSLR: Canon ESO Rebel 3 1100D, and for imaging in prime focus the correct backfocus is achieved by using both of the provided extensions and adjusting the focuser about halfway.
Also keep in mind that if you ever plan to use a 2x barlow (edit: for imaging), you'll need an additional 2-inch extender.

The backfocus is 55mm that is from the glass, not the M24 adapter. You'll have to add about 3mm to it.
