Meade's Focal Reducer/Field Flattener is a fully multi-coated, 3 element design to help the
astro-photographer capture wide field photographs of the night sky with the Series 6000 APO's.
This Flattener was designed to reduce the focal length of the Meade Series 6000 APO Refractors
to expand the field of view with the camera being used. This new Flattener will also optically
flatten the image by minimizing vignetting and by yielding pin-point stars to the edge of your
Meade's Focal Reducer/Field Flattener removes distortion within the field of view by correcting
spherical aberration. With most refractors, deep-sky objects are too difficult and large to fit
within the field of view; however, Meade's Field Flattener solves this issue by reducing the
focal length 0.8x, which allows your refractor telescope's field of view to increase.
Easily attach to your camera with the included M42 x .75 OD-Thread. The Flattener itself can be
connected to your telescope through the 2" nose-piece. This Series 6000 3-Element 2" Field Flattener
is to be used for the 80mm APO Refractor Telescope.
