Description

I got the Stellarvue Reducer/Flattener for the ES 102 apo and I didnt have the right adapter to make it screw in, but it fit into the other thing, and I tried to get the spacing as close to perfect before even trying.

The weather has been bad, my back was killing me, we are in quarantine because the wife tested positive. All meaning astrophotography has taken a back seat.

However, I will say this is a pretty weird virus. The wife and I had been getting after it pretty good, so how I didnt catch it is a mystery.

One a side note, I really wish ATIK or SBIG would use the IMX 492
