About this product
Part Number: gso6rc-baffle-extGSO6RC-Baffle-EXT
Version 2 printed using a carbon fibre PETG filament (stronger and less brittle than version 1).
With some GSO Ritchey–Chrétien telescopes (StellaLyra, Orion, iOptron, Astro-Tech, Apertura, TS & others) aberrant light can reach the camera sensor, causing reflections that make it difficult to achieve sufficient flat frames. These baffle extensions will eliminate this problem.
Note: 10" RC extension - Some users (but not all) have reported that the 10" extension will not fit through the front of the closed tube version of the telescope. In such cases the primary mirror cell will need to be removed to access the baffle. Alternately, the secondary can be removed from the front, giving access to the baffle.
