Recommendation needed for a reducer using an Explore Scientific APO 102 ED Triplet F/7

Hello,

Since several of the members of AB use the same refractor I thought that some of you have a recommendation on a reducer. In order to capture some larger images I would need a little bit more field. Is anyone using a specific reducer, and what are the experiences? Or is it better to buy for example a 60mm telescope from Williams Optics?

I use a Stellarvue one on mine, works a treat.  https://optcorp.com/collections/barlows-and-correctors-and-reducers/products/stellarvue-focal-reducer-field-flattener-for-f7-refractors-with-2inch-focusers

Thank you Scott for your recommendation, I looked at several ones and this one seems to fit perfectly for "our" telescopes. I will definitely consider this one!
