Hi Im curious, I see every Sky Watcher Evostar has its corresponding flattener/reducer,,except for the EVostar 150. Is there one in the works to be made or is there another proprietary product available now, to be used with Canon Rebel. Thanks in advance

I've seen them listed on sites before. I think it was at least planned...

 

Edit: Teleskop-Service even says they have them in stock.

Right now you would use the Evostar 120ED 0.85x reducer and the Starizona 2” nose piece adapter.

Starting next year after the new year we will have the large format 0.77x reducer specifically for the Evostar 150DX model.
