About Celestron f/6.3.

This combination focal reducer and field corrector lens accessory works with all Celestron C5, C8, C9¼, C11 and C14 telescopes. This clever accessory makes it possible to have a dual focal ratio instrument, without sacrificing image quality. The Reducer/Corrector is f/6.3 for C5, C8, C9¼ and C11 telescopes and f/7 for the C14 telescope.

If offers wide fields of view with any Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. Used for astrophotography, it reduces exposure time by a factor of 3.

Celestron doesn't offer a f/6.3 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, because the design is impractical, with a large central obstruction, and resulting loss in contrast. This, added to the inability to utilize longer focal ratios for certain objects, led Celestron to design the four-element, fully multicoated f/6.3 Reducer/Corrector. Results are amazing both visually and photographically.

The Celestron f/6.3. is commonly used for Astronomy, Astrophotography and more.The Celestron f/6.3. is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Avid adventurer, Casual/ recreational among others.The Celestron f/6.3. is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Celestron f/6.3.: Easy to use, Great optics and Strong construction

Don't waste your money

A telescope is as good as its weakest link. My c-14 optics were figured by Thomas Johnson himself...when I add this accessory, I'm retro-graded back to the days of half and 5/8 wave images and optics. Trust me, after a month it'll be that one item at the bottom of your eyepiece case that just sets there, and you'll occasionally pull it out to show your fellow observers.

Perfect Match Canon T1i+CPC800+Moon

By

from Tucson, AZ  -  Avid Adventurer

I got the Reducer/Corrector so I can get the entire moon in my Field of View. I use the CPC800 mostly for Deep Space shots with my Hyperstar F2 set up. I wanted the ability to get full lunar shots without having to take two in order to get the whole full moon. Not anymore! This also seals the back of the scope helps the keep the dust out. Canon T1i + CPC800 + Reducer/Corrector = Full Moon!

Celestron Focal Reducer F/6.3

By

from Brook Park, Ohio  -  Avid Adventurer

Using this beats looking for an eyepiece to give the widest field needed with an F/10 telescope. Put this focal reducer on and then use your widest field eyepiece and its there. I use this on my Celestron 9.25" SCT.

Using this reducer/corrector is like getting a whole new set of eyepieces! Once you use it, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it.

works as described

By

from Abingdon, VA  -  Casual/ Recreational

Used to decrease the focal length from 10 to 6.3 on a 9.25 Celestron CAT. Decreased focal length = increased light gathering power and wider field of view.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  can you confirm it also works with the C6 ?
ROBERT M  I don't have a C-6, but all the Celestron scopes in this class use the same parts. If you get the part and it doesn't work, you can return it. But I bet you won't have any problem. Mine works fine.
Shopper  do you send this item to greece? please let me know, thank you for your time.
Scott B  I'm sorry, we do not ship to greece.
