Product information "EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC Zero X Field Flattener 2''/M48 for ED80, ED102 and ED127 APO"
Field flattener without reduction factor for Explore Scientific ED80 , ED102 and ED127 APO Refractors
The imaging plane of many telescopes is not flat but curved. This means that only the area in the centre is perfectly focused - the edge becomes blurred. The human eye can usually compensate for this image property, but a camera shows increasing blurriness towards the edge of the image field. The Explore Scientific Zero X field flattener eliminates the field curvature in many telescopes with a focal length of approx. 480 to 952 mm. The Zero X field flattener was calculated and developed for Explore Scientific ED80, ED102 and ED127 apochromats with focal ratios of F=6.0 and F=7.5. The image sharpness at the edge is dramatically increased. The stars appear round and no longer distorted - a clear benefit for the whole image aesthetics. The Zero X image flattener can be used not only with Explore Scientific Apos, but also with many other Apos. This flattener does not change the focal length of the telescope.

Correction for up to full-frame camera sensors (24x36mm)
The Explore Scientific Zero X image flattener has been developed due to the rapid development of ever larger camera sensors. With it, there is finally a field flattener available that illuminates and corrects the field of view for full-frame camera sensors up to 24x36 mm.

How to use the Zero X field flattener with M48 thread connection
This field flattener has a 2 inch (50.8 mm) plug-in connection on the telescope side, with which it is inserted into the telescope instead of an eyepiece or star diagonal mirror. On the camera side, there is a standardised M48 x 0.75 mm connection thread. This M48 connection thread offers a larger free inner diameter than the usual T2 (M42) thread and prevents vignetting when using large camera sensors. With an optionally available and camera-specific adapter ring, a DSLR camera can be connected to it. The working distance is already set at 55 mm. Of course, mirrorless cameras or special astro cameras can also be used with the M48 thread connection. For this, the appropriate M48 spacer sleeves or adapters are additionally required to set the right working distance of 55 mm. This must always be done with every corrector or field flattener so that the best possible field flattening is achieved.

Filter thread on telescope side available
The telescope-side 2.0 inch plug-in sleeve has an M48x0.75 filter thread (internal thread). Individual 2.0 inch colour or nebula filters can be inserted here to increase the contrast of the images.

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC OPTOLONG 2" L-Pro Deep-Sky Light Pollution Filter
LPS filter L-Pro for deep sky nebula constellation photography. The relentless spread or urbanization and its associated light pollution have become a growing problem for all amateur astro photographers. The current solutions to the problem can be expensive and might include the purchase of a monochrome camera, several types of narrowband filters and a filter wheel. Especially with inexpensive newtonian telescopes, double-lens ED refractors or even achromats, the L-Pro filters open up completely new possibilities for the capture of high-class astronomical images even out of the light polluted city. CMOS cameras can deliver images like monochrome cameras. This new generation of filters makes it possible to take amazing astrophotos directly from the light-polluted city with all its artificial light sources.L-Pro is a multi-bandpass filter which offers better color balance by maximizing the transmission band. The balanced transmission allows astrophotos to be taken with minimal color cast to broadband emission objects such as galaxies, reflection nebulae and globular star clusters. L-Pro is the best choice for light pollution suppression. L-Pro description L-Pro (L-Professional) filter is designed to improve the visibility of various deepsky objects. By selectively reducing the transmission of wavelengths of light pollutants, specifically those produced by artificial lightings including mercury vapor lamps, both high & low pressure sodium vapor lights and the unwanted natural light caused by neutral oxygen emission in our atmosphere (i.e. skyglow). Together with the highly transparent in main nebula emission lines at OIII (496nm and 500nm), H-beta (486nm), NII (654nm and 658nm), H-alpha (656nm) as well as SII (672nm), the filter is suitable for enhancing the contrast and details for both visual and photograghic purpose at sub-rural areas with heavy light pollution. L-Pro is a multi-bandpass filter which offers better color balance by maximizing the transmission band. The balanced transmission allows astrophotos to be taken with minimal color cast to broadband emission objects such as galaxies, reflection nebulae and globular star clusters. L-Pro is the best choice for light pollution suppression. Main use and performance Suitable for visual observation and astrophotography. L-Pro filter has a very low transmission reduction rate against continuous spectrum space objects, and thus is quite effective in suppressing light pollution sources when shooting galaxies, reflection nebulae and globular star clusters. The same holds true for visual star observations. L-Pro filter alone can suppress infrared wavelength, and thus can be used at ease for ''L'' image shootings with CCDs. Light pollution filters do not eliminate the effects of light pollution or increase the object’s brightness. In many cases, they increase the contrast between nebula and night sky, not brightening the nebula. WARNING: These nebula filters are not designed for sun observation. DO NOT LOOK AT THE SUN WITH THIS FILTER. You will go BLIND if you ignore this warning.Coating technology L-Pro has a multiple anti-reflective coating on the optical substrate. The L-Pro filter uses a precision coating based on ion deposition coating technology. This ensures durability and scratch resistance as well as stability on the CWL (central wavelength), which is not affected by temperature changes. Absolute precision and homogeneity of the coatings as well as maximum values for transmission in the passband and optical density in the off-band range are guaranteed for all filters.

The current solutions to the problem can be expensive and might include the purchase of a monochrome camera, several types of narrowband filters and a filter wheel. Especially with inexpensive but fast newtonian telescopes, double-lens ED refractors or even achromats, the L-eXtreme filters open up completely new possibilities for high-class astronomical images even from the light polluted city. CMOS cameras can deliver images like monochrome cameras. This new generation of filters makes it possible to take amazing astrophotos directly from the heavily light-polluted city with all its artificial light sources. The dual narrow bandpass for the wavelengths of O-III and H-Alpha and the almost complete attenuation of the interfering light sources of these new filters make this an ideal solution. L-eXtreme Description L-eXtreme is a two 7nm narrow bandpass filter which can be used with one-shot color cameras like DSLRs (digital SLR), color CMOS and monochrome CCD cameras. The convenience and cost-effectiveness of this filter allows amateurs to photograph rich emission nebulas, even in bright, heavily light-polluted skies. The L-eXtreme filter is the better choice for fast optical systems at a competitive price. It isolates the H-Alpha and Oxygen III nebula emission lines so that the contrast and signal-to-noise ratio between nebulae are maximized.

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 3" 0.7x Reducer/corrector
The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 3" 0.7x Reducer/corrector, reduces a compatible telescope's focal length by a factor of 0.7x (for around f/8) and 0.8x (for around f/10) respectively. The reducer/corrector not only reduces the focal length but also flattens the field. Although originally developed for the Explore Scientific ED-APOs 127mm and 152mm, the reducer can be used with many systems - for example with the Explore Scientific ED-APOs 102mm and 165mm (please note, this will not work on the Explore Scientific 80mm ED Apo refractors though). With certain telescope focal lengths, a slight restriction of the correction at the edge of the image field can be expected when using full-frame sensors. This unit comes with 3" barrel adaptor for direct focuser thread M54x0.75 (the standard focuser thread of the Explore Scientific Essential series of ED Apos) and T2 camera adaptor. This reducer/corrector features a free aperture of 65mm, so that it can be used even with cameras that have a large sensor - if the telescope allows for this. Note: As previously mentioned, this Reducer/corrector comes with a screw on ring, which fits the standard focuser thread of the Explore Scientific Essential series of ED Apos. For telescopes which are equipped with the 2.5" HEX Focuser, the optional screw-on adapter part no: 0510366 is needed. Other telescopes, not in the Explore Scientific range, with standard 2" push-fit focusers will need the Explore Scientific 2" Adaptor for 3" Corrector - part no: 0510364 to get this reducer correctly fitted.

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC HR Coma Corrector
After three years of testing and refining we are extremely proud to present the new Explore Scientific High Resolution (HR) Coma Corrector. This corrector is a class of it´s own - it is fully functional for visual use and expands the focal length by only 6%! The Explore Scientific Coma Correktor is delivered as a complete set together with a rotating helical focuser with laser-etched scale, so you get a full package: corrector, adaptor to T2 (M42x0.75mm), adaptor to M48 (M48x0.75) and the helical focuser for visual fun. This coma corrector really is "high resolution" - it deliveres a visual polystrehl performance of 0,98 at f/4 and 0,96 at f/3! So it can stay in the telescope - and you will not only enjoy a tack-sharp Jupiter, but aslo sharp and defined moons in the future! What this means in terms of performance is shown in the three pictures with the graphs - the sharpness increase in those comparisons with and without corrector are stunning (examples are 400mm f/4, f/3,5 and f/3). Please notice: These graphs are for FLAT FIELD! You will get this performance without refocussing! Diameter of the field is 30mm - it doesn´t make sense to increase this with 2" and fast optical systems. Length of the 2" corrector barrel is approx. 85mm and it can be used with almost all 2" focusers on the market. To use the HR Coma Corrector visually, you need to have at least 32mm spare inward travel at your focuser, while the focus is on the same plane as the focusers end. Photographically there is no problem - the HR Coma Corrector shifts the focus outward by about 35mm, so that you will have no problem in achieving focus, when you are able to focus your camera without the HR Coma Corrector.

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC MPCC Field Flatt.ED APO+NikonT2
The image plane of many telescopes is not plane, but curved. This results in a picture that has its optimal focus only in the center of the field of view - the edge of the field is out of focus and thus unsharp. The human eye is able to accomodate most of this but a camera will show stars that get increasingly unsharp towards the edge of the field. The Explore Scientific Multi Purpose Curvature Corrector eliminates field curvature in a variety of telescopes - Explore Scientific Apos and many other refractors and cassegrain telescopes. This increases the edge sharpness in the image drastically. Improves edge sharpness not only with Explore Scientific Apos, but also with many other refractor and cassegrain telescopes. This image field leveller fits all Nikon DSLR cameras, but can also be used for other camera types due to the universal T2 thread connection. This requires an optional camera-specific T2 ring. SPECIFICATIONSImage flattener for Nikon DSLR cameras Eliminates the field curvature of ED APO telescopes Can also be used for various cassegrains The image sharpness at the edge is drastically increased 2 inch/50.8mm push-in connector with filter thread T2 threaded connection (M42x0,75mm) Full multi-coating on all lens surfacesStainless steel housing Adapter for Nikon F bayonet included DELIVERY SCOPE Bildfeldebner Nikon (1 piece)

You obtain a flat and sharp image until the edges, including with a full-frame DSLR camera. Ultra-sharp image over the entire field of view of the DSLR full-frame sensor The SD flattener improves the image quality to the edge of the field of view without changing the original focal length of the telescope. The field of view of the DSLR camera with a full-frame sensor is fully illuminated (44 mm), ensuring that stars appear sharp until the edges of the image. When used in conjunction with the Reducer HD, the focal length is reduced by a factor of 0.79 (f/7.7→6.1) whilst maintaining the 44 mm illumination. High-contrast AS coating The anti-reflex AS coating, which is also used on our high-end VSD 100 f/3.8 astrograph, delivers a high light transmission of 99.9% per lens surface. Loss of light, ghosting and scattered light images are virtually eliminated thanks to the completely matte interior coating. FEATURES Reduces the focal length by a factor of 0.79 Designed for full-frame cameras High-contrast AS coating Ultra-sharp image over the entire field of view Designed for full-frame DSLR cameras Illumination: 44 mm Correct distance to chip: 63.5 mm Designed for the SD81S, SD103S and SD115S Also suitable for the ED81S, ED103S and ED 115S DELIVERY CONTENT SD Flattener HD Reducer HD Adapter ring for SD81 66 mm EX extension tube Dust caps

Vixen Flattener HD Kit für FL55SS Telescopes
Converts the FL55SS into a high-performance astrograph The kit consists of a high-performance flattener lens, a reducer and the EX TUBE 66 connection ring, which was developed for the FL55SS Fluorite Apochromatic Refractor and improves photographic performance by dramatically flattening the surface. Ultra-sharp image over the entire field of view of the DSLR full-frame sensor The Flattener HD for the FL55SS reduces the change in the focal length of the FL55SS to a minimum and improves the evenness of the surface for prime-focus photography. The 44 mm image circle covers the entire field of view of a full-frame DSLR camera. When used in combination with the HD5.5 Reducer, the focal length is reduced by 0.79x (from f5.5 to f4.3) and the image circle retains a diameter of 44 mm, which significantly improves the sharpness across the entire field of view of DSLR cameras with a full-frame sensor. 96% light volume to the edge of the field of view The Flattener HD was specially developed for the FL55SS refractor to reduce loss of light to a minimum across the entire 44 mm image circle of full-frame DSLR cameras. Exceptionally high contrast The same anti-reflective AS coatings used on our high-end VSD 100 f/3.8 astrograph are used to provide an outstanding light transmission of 99.9% per lens surface. Thanks to the matte black surface of the Reducer HD kit, loss of light, ghosting and scattered light and largely prevented.
