  14. hi.. I heard someone make 16" reflector with firex glass. my wonder is this could be realize with just one man's hand? i think this would be very precise curve. can hand made would be good? and if yes, how? thanks
  15. @Supernova : Thanks for detailed explanation. it helped me. and did you means that there is way without reducer to shot outside of camera frame? for example, i want to shot andromeda on one frame. however, Edge HD 8" is too enlarge this object. so i thought reducer to reduce this. if just reduce in photoshop, what about outside of frame? sorry if i miss some point. thanks
