SW Quatro F4 Aplanatic Comma Corrector for NON SW (10", f3.9)Newtonians

Will the Sky-Watcher Quatro F4 Aplanatic Coma Corrector work with the Orion 10'' f3.9 Astrograph?
Wasn't it designed only for the SW Quatro series Newtonians only?

They honestly might just be the same scope. Do you have the ability to test it out?

No. Unfortunately I don't have that option.
I hope someone with an Orion 10'' f3.9 Astrograph who uses the SW Coma Corrector could shed some light on this one.

Newtonian Coma Correctors are completely interchangeable, as long as you stay within the F ratio limits.
All newts use a parabolic primary mirror. From the coma corrector's point of view it doesn't matter who made the parabola, as long as it is a parabola.
The Sky Watcher aplanatic is itself a rebranded "GPU" aplanatic.
I use my SW aplanatic CC with a Bresser 8" F3.9 Newt and it works great. sharp stars to the corners of a 23mm micro 4/3 sensor.
Here is an example of my star corners with the Aplanatic CC + 8" F3.9 + ASI294. That whole album is full of EAA live stacking with the same setup.
