I remember Skywatcher stating they would have a FR for the Esprit series available in Jan but I have not seen or heard anything yet, even on their website.  Any updates???

Don't know about the SW reducer, but I use a Starizona APEX ED L with my Esprit and have had great results.

I have the ES .7 3" on my Esprit 120..  Works fine.  Requires an adapter from Precise Parts to screw right on the focuser.  The APEX L requires an extension for spacing on the 120 and 150..

It’s in the website under reducers and correctors. Dealers can order them already. We are just waiting for the shipment to arrive any time now.

They just arrived. They should be making their way through QA in the next week or so. Because it’s the first shipment QA takes a little longer. But they should be shipping in the next couple weeks.

Can an order be placed directly from Skywatcher USA or do we have to go through dealer?

Right now we are not accepting orders through out site. For now we recommend ordering through a dealer of choice.
