Teleskop-Service 4-element Reducer/Flattener 0.79x (Red279)
This Photoline 4-element FR/FF based upon the Riccardi reducer design is the best I've used. It is very versatile, correcting refractors from 350-800mm focal lengths (see table below). It is the only reducer/flattener I have found that does a great job correcting my 60mm f/5.5 doublet (a particular challenge) but it does equally well with my 90mm f/7 triplet by adjusting the spacing. I'm only selling because I bought the newer version (TSRed279) that has an additional M54x0.75 male thread on the barrel so that I can thread it into the 2" focuser on my SV60EDS scope to eliminate any tilt, which is particularly critical at f/4.3. Wear and tear on the outside consistent with a used optical element but the glass is perfect.

You can calculate postage from V2M 7B9 on the Canada Post website. I prefer Interac Money transfer or PayPal.

Description of the Red279 on the TS website:
See (note however that the picture on the website is the TSRed279; the Red279 does not have the M54 thread on the barrel)
