To be honest I am not exactly sure what the best reducer for a Esprit 120 is. I suspect that one of the adjustable WO reducers would work fine.

I would always go with a mono sensor and good quality filters.

 

Would this WO reducer work with 120mm refractor? As on Rother Valley site it lists up to 103mm...

I presume with my relatively flat results and taking flat calibration frames, I may get away with out using a Flattener do you think?... Or do you need one with mono sensors of this size (asi1600)

you will have to work out the optimal spacing for your scope which may be less than 55mm but I would think it will work.

You may also need an adapter to fit it. Ask a shop and if they are any good they will be able to help you.
