    I purchased the Celestron reducer/corrector in order to drop the focal length of my older C8 from 2000mm down to 1280mm. The reducer performs as advertised; my low-power eyepieces kept their edge-to-edge sharpness, while increasing the field of view. I'm now able to easily find (with help from a Telrad) and observe those large, faint "fuzzies" at lower power, while still taking full advantage of the light-grabbing power of the 8-inch aperture. I could not notice any change in optical performance, except for the reduced focal length and increased field of view for a given eyepiece. If you're looking for nice, wide, low-power views out of your SCT, but don't have the $700.00 for a TV 50mm panoptic (I didn't!), this is definitely the way to go! For a 2000mm FL SCT, adding the reducer/corrector will make a 32mm plossl act like a 50mm (40X mag), increasing the field of view, and saving you hundreds of dollars. Well worth the cost!

    This product does not work with Edge HD. Be careful that you have the right optical tube to match this product

        This is a great addition to my celestron 8se telescope. Gives you a better perspective and sometimes you see more of what you're looking for without being to close. The Andrometer galaxy, double clusters and the moon all look better thru a low power eyepiece and this focal reducer..

          Well made accessory. I only used it once so far but I'm already getting better images of DSOs.

              Comments about Celestron f/6.3 Focal Reducer / Corrector Lens:

              I purchased this item and it shipped out the same day. It arrived in perfect condition...the glass is pristine. This will be used with a CPC 1100 on an EQ wedge. The reducer allows for a much wider field of view, and allows me to capture images with shorter exposure times. This greatly reduces the chances for error in my images. The item is very easy to add to the optical tube assembly, and allows for easy attachment of your camera/t-adaper assembly. The design still allows for clearance with my dslr even when the tube is pointed at zenith.
