    Default GSO 2" Coma Corrector for fast Newtonian Telescope



    Hi everyone! I have Celestron 6 inch f/5 Newtonian. I am looking for an inexpensive coma corrector and came across with a GSO that cos approximately $120. The reviews on the seller's website are very good. Nevertheless, I would appreciate your comments on this since I truly value the knowledge and experience of the members of this group. Thanks in advance!

    I am sorry to say that it will not work unless you change the complete focuser for a 2" low profile focuser. See the link for a detailed explanation of why it does not work.

    This used to be a great place to hang out but now it is not safe here anymore.
