I *think* so, as the 150 Max and C6 versions are listed as the same price on FLO: https://www.firstlightoptics.com/bahtinov-focus-masks/starsharp-bahtinov-focus-masks.html
Another SGL member may be able to confirm. I can measure it tomorrow if you like?

I have just sent FLO an email and asked if they can confirm the 150mm sizes are ‘generic’.

Update: most items sold, I'm withdrawing this ad to create a new one just for the Skymax 150. I don't have an option to edit the thread title to include "Withdrawn" -- does anyone know how I can do this?

I think you edit the original first post and that allows you to edit the title as well

Thanks for the reply. I think you're right, but I don't have the "Edit" button next to "Quote" for the early posts in this thread. I'm probably missing something obvious!

      Seeing wasn't the best yesterday, but I hadn't shot a prom in a month.
      Thanks for the peek.

      Seeing was poor (3.5/5) yesterday, but I just had to shoot these two before they went around the SW limb.
      Thanks for the peek.😀

      Hello all. Thank you for taking a moment to read this & offer your suggestions/ advice. I'm sure my basic question has been asked many times: "In your opinion or experience, what are the first, most important, necessary accessories I should add in order to maximize the the use and ease of a newly acquired Celestron Nexstar 127 SLT ? I have a power supply adapter, 9mm,10mm, 25mm eyepieces, 2x Barlow and 90 degree diagonal mirror adaptor. With a modest budget and a 2 week deadline, I've researched numerous reviews and narrowed some choices to additional Plossl eyepieces, an assortment of filters or a dew shield. All of and these can probably be purchased within my budget but I'm even willing to take the plunge on an upgrade to a better mount, which I have no idea where to start. Any and all suggestions, advice and opinions are gladly appreciated. Thank you all, from across the pond in northeastern US.

      When I first spotted this one early this morning, it was standing straight up and very tall.  However, by the time the sun was high enough for the shot it had begun to fall back toward the surface.
      Thanks for the peek.
