Explore Scientific’s 3” Field Flattener .7x Focal Reducer addresses the edge-of-field aberrations caused by curved focal planes. They optimize the photographing capabilities of fast refractor telescopes.

  • As a focal reducer, this device will reduce your f-ratio by .7, which results in a wider field of view, brighter images and less exposure time. Recommended for Explore Scientific 127mm and 152mm refracting telescopes, this field flattener/focal reducer boasts fully multi-coated optics and comes with 2 adapters to accommodate different focuser sizes.

    Explore Scientific designed the piece for their F/8 system, but through user experiences and subsequent testing they have concluded that the 3" Flattener / Reducer performs very well with their F/7.5 refractors also.

  • Includes 2" adapter to attach directly to threads of a new style Explore Scientific focuser draw tube. It also can connect to your camera.

    Great

    This was an awesome buy! Great starter telescope, would recommend!

    I took the attached photo with my phone through the telescope (with the phone included smartphone adapter)

    Amazing!

    This telescope is awesome. My wife and I are serious beginners and have been loving it. Ryan with telescope space has been nothing but incredible. So very helpful and a pleasure to work with. Thank you guys so much for a fantastic start to this amazing hobby!!!

    Quality and value - across the board

    My first telescope purchase and I hit the jackpot with Telescope Space! While doing my research, I found that pricing at the various online sites was very comparable. I chose Telescope Space for my purchase because of the avaialability of the equipment in which I was intersted. Little did I know that I would receive the absolute best online customer service I have ever experienced. And when I was having a problem with my newly purchased telescope (my problem - not the equipment's) I made a call to Telescope Space and was provided fantastic assistance by the founder of the company.

    If you value customer service, I strongly suggest using telescope Space for all your astronomical optical needs - you won't be sorry you did. . .

    Great Telescope for beginner

    Astronomer myself, I choiced this telescope for my 5 years old son who wants to explore the Universe.... And I ve been very impressed by the global quality of this product... all the optics are good enough to watch planets and near Messier objects....It s a great deal for all beginner (young and even expert)...
