About this product
Part Number: K0.8X-AU06
This useful 0.8x Reducer / Field Flattener enables DSLR astrophotography with most f/5-f/7 refractor telescopes.
It is optimised for DSLR cameras and telescopes with f/5-f/7 focal ratios.
It will also work well with telescope focal lengths narrowly outside this optimised f/range if using an astronomy camera with a smaller sensor.
Fully multi-coated optics fitted into a CNC machined body with a gloss black anodised finish.
Removing the 2" nosepiece reveals M54 female thread for direct screw-on connection.

Purchased this is lieu of the more expensive dedicated flattener from skywatcher to attach a DSLR to my Evolux 62ed
Had to wait a week to try it out and haven't really given it a full first light try as of yet but initial checks on the moon and Jupiter through a break in the clouds show I'm able to achieve prime focus with no obvious aberration or distortion in the field of view with my M42 t ring adapter (no spacing required) very happy bunny so far!
The real MVP is Chris at FLO though who guided me through all my questions and is a real expert in his field. Thank you so much for that.
Once better skies hit the UK I'll come back to this review on the flattener itself.

Got it in Aug 2020 after FLO recommended for use with 72 ED Skywatcher. Works well enough and flattens flied right to the end of my APSC sensor. But did need a 1mm spacer.
Knocked of one star as it introduced a slight tilt in the field, not too bad but noticeable. Would not be a problem on a CCD camera, but is not fixable when using a dslr. FLO suggested I tweak the focuser to fix the issue.

Haven't had much chance to use it to give a fair review but FLO as always very quick to dispatch.
