Hello everyone!!  I'm about 9 months into this adventure and have a question.  I apologize if this question has been asked before and if it has, please point me in the right direction.  I just purchased an Explore Scientific 102ED Essential Series refractor.  I'm having trouble locating a focal reducer/field flattener combo that will work well with this scope.  Anyone have any ideas?

Works very well and I have no issues with distortion.
