    Default Explore Scientific Coma Corrector vs ?



    Anyone using the ES coma corrector?

    Price-wise, it's between the GSO/Astrotech & the TeleVue Paracorr. The Paracorr is tunable to each eyepiece, but I do not know how valuable or necessary that feature is. Is it worth the extra $170.00? It's an absent feature on the ES & GSO.

    I've searched the forums for info on the ES coma corrector, but came up empty-handed. Plenty to read on GSO, Baader, Paracorr, etc.

    FYI: my usage would be mostly visual & the scope is an f/4.9

    You might try finding a used Paracorr 1. It's not tunable but it is said to work great on F5 scopes. The tunable Paracorr 2 will work on a f5 but my understanding is it's intended for faster scopes (f3 & f4). I've seen the paracorr 1 on CN & Astromart for about $160-$190.
