(I like a finder that you can do a little observing through.) The supplied reducer was not recommended for visual applications, but if you thread a T2 diagonal directly onto the back of it, it works with that eyepiece (a TV 24mm panoptic) with about 1/2 turn on the Askar's focuser past infinity to spare. I'm not sure what effect that has on the magnification, (looks like not much) ...but you get a somewhat shorter tube and an upright image - an extremely sharp-to-the-edges upright image. I'll work some more on lowering the profile; the rings and stalk and everything that it came with are too fussy and big for me, but the reducer fits nicely in that Svbony guidescope bracket. (Go figure...)
