Field Flattener with Takahashi 120mm


Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of getting a Takahashi 120mm but I'm unsure if I need the Takahashi field flattener or if there are other options that are more affordable but of a similar quality?

Looking at your equipment, you're an imager so I don't see any reason why you would not want the flattener. Dedicated flatteners from the scope manufacturers are almost always better than generic ones (e.g. larger size of flat image circle, ease of use, pre-defined backspace requirement so you don't have to work it out by trial & error yourself). If you really don't have the budget for the Tak one, a generic model designed for f/5 - f/8 refractors like the Hotech SCA is worth a try.

Thanks for your help.

My basic instinct is to go with the Tak for the reasons you have mentioned. I'm hoping to sell my Skywatcher 12" go to Dob to go towards it so fingers crossed.

Yes, your right about imaging.
