No need to apologize for questions. A lot of manufacturers create their own reducers for their scopes. There are some generic ones as well that work across a number of different scopes and focal ratios. Typically you'll see something like "reducer works for scopes from f/4 to f/7".
Anyway, instead of trying to find a way to reduce the SN, have you considered perhaps just picking up a small APO refractor? I'm not sure what your budget is, but something like the AT60 and its flattener would run you about $500. That'll give you a 360mm focal length. Too much? They also sell a 0.8x reducer, bringing the cost up to about $550 and giving you a focal length of about 290mm.
I have. I'll check out that scope. I'd like something that has good chromatic aberration control, if that's the right verbiage.
A triplet, that is flat. 360mm would be pretty good, and the extra 50 for a reducer would be worth it.
I was thinking the Radian Raptor to be honest. I like that it's all inclusive.
I don't have a TON of time to dedicate to figuring it all out on a new scope. A night that I plan to image, I can up and running in under 20 min.
And then tend to the family for whatever. I don't get much down time.
So ideally, I'd want something that I can just remove my reflector, mount on the refractor and attach my camera and run it.
I just read a few reviews on that scope...that might be the perfect match for me. Good price point. Sounds like it takes good images.
On my way to Astrobin to check out some results.
Thank you to all!
