Meade 6.3 reducer is a 4-element; 41mm dia.
- The Meade 0.63 Focal Reducer & Field Flattener screws onto the rear cell of SCT's, converting f/10 scopes to f/6.3 or f/6.3 scopes to f/4.
- Reduces photographic exposure times by approximately 50%.
- The Meade 0.63 Focal Reducer & Field Flattener 41mm-diameter lens system helps flatten the field of Schmidt-Cassegrain models, significantly improving edge-of-field corrections.
Meade f/6.3 Focal Reducer & Field FlattenerMeade Series 4000 f/6.3 Focal Reducer/Field Flattener: Threaded on to the telescope's rear cell, the f/6.3 Focal Reducer/Field Flattener reduces the main telescope's focal ratio by a factor of 0.63 (e.g. from f/10 to f/6.3). It can be used for visual work when the user desires a wider field of view, or when placed in front of a CCD imager, #62 T-Adapter or Off-Axis Guider and camera body, the f/6.3 reducer produces photographic exposure times by about 50%. Designed primarily for f/10 and f/15 LX-series models, the Focal Reducer can also be used photographically and in CCD imaging applications with f/6.3 SCT's, resulting in an effective focal ratio of f/4.
