are they about the same length

Sorry missed this reply.

The Esprit 80 has a focal length of 400mm and the 100 550mm

I use the standard field flattener that SW sell, it doesn't reduce at all, just ensure a perfectly flat image.

I've measured it from the back of the focuser closed in to the front of the dew shield fully expanded at 41.5cm for the Esprit 80 and 51.5cm for the Esprit 100, these are just rough figures as I don't want to wind my focusers fully in as they are set.
