Where to purchase a focal reducer for my ES127CF?

ES only has one for 3" @ $449!

Any suggestions appreciated.

+ $80 For the adapter "Explore Scientific Adapter for FFFR507X-00 to 2.5" Hex Focuser - 510366" ES Link

I pre-ordered this as well Explore Scientific M48x0.75 Adapter for FFFR ES Link

I also have this one M48x0.75 Adapter for 2.5 HEX ES Link

I have this coming today from Starizona for my ES 127 CF.  I've seen several youtubers (Trevor Jones, for one) using and recommending this set up for the 127mm telescope.  I already have the Starizona filter slider.  I personally like the field of view of the .65 reducer compared to the .7 reducer as represented on Stellarium, but that may just be my personal preference.I think all this is about the same price or maybe even a little less that Explore Scientific setup, and Starizona has them in stock for immediate shipping.  And I am not a shill for Starizona!!

Any reports on this for the ES 127 CF?  I’m looking for a FF/FR for mine, too.

I own the ES127 CF. I use this: https://www.telescop...d=focal reducer

 

I works just fine.
