    Default Skywatcher ED80 Esprit Reducer ?



    Hello,

    Has anyone that owns a Esprit 80ED managed to successfully fit a reducer (Not a Flattener) to the Esprit 80, I've been told that there is no reducer available ? I want to buy a Esprit 80 but I want to achieve the widest FOV possible. I'm aware that it comes complete with a field flattener that works very well, but that leaves me with 80mm X 400mm, Any feedback will be much appreciated If you have pictures or any info that would be handy as well

    Same question but for the Esprit 120. It comes with a flattener but no reducer. I have not found anything saying someone makes one.
    I'd love to find one for mine too.
