    flattener for meade 80ED APO

    hello, this is my first post here. I own a meade serie 5000 ed 80 apo and I would like to know what is the best reducer-flattener for this OTA. I heard that the comma corrector from baader may work ok, but I have not seen much information or pictures taken with this OTA and a digital reflex. I would appreciate whatever information.

    Thanks and clear skies!!

    The Baader is worth a try, nothing to lose. I used to use a Meade 6.3 with good results on a smaller-chip camera, it was not so good with the 300D.

    Thanks Chuck for your response. Actually, I was thinking about the WO 0.8x v.II that was designed for the 66ED f6, but the Baader comma corrector may be also a good alternative. Do you know any website where I can see pictures taken with these combo? Thanks again.

    Sorry, no I don't. I would google around, and maybe ask on the WO yahoo group.
