Celestron 6SE and a focal reducer

Recommended Posts

I've used this combination on 8" - 16" SCT's. You should expect to get a wider field of view and a brighter image with a given eyepiece compared to the original F10. The F3.3 reducer is excellent for small chip sensors but is not recommended for DSLR's or for visual use.

yes, absolutely. But get the proper Celestron F6.3 focal reducer. It will not only reduce the focal ratio (exposures 2.5x shorter) and focal length (easier tracking), but also correct the SCT to reduce sharp stars at the edges. I first tried other SCT reducers (except Meade F6.3 which I believe is similar to the Celestron) and none were anywhere near as good as the Celestron.
