Very nice compact widefield imaging rig. Those orange zs66's are lovely little scopes to own - I have one myself. I started some AP with mine using an EOS 1100D and a 0.8 reducer and got some really nice results. I now use it for EAA with equally good results, particularly with narrowband. I plan to get back to some AP at some point. Do you use a reducer? Have you had any results yet?

Hi Rob,

Yes, cracking little scope and no, I don't use a reducer. The original WO reducer/flattener matched to this scope is hard to come by so I'm using a Baader multi-purpose coma corrector for fast Newts and it works well!

Regards, Jon
