Questions & Answers

Product Questions


the FS 60cb comes with the dedicated reducer (to get 255mm of focal length)? if not, do you have it for sale? Also, do you have the adapter for 2" eyepieces?


I would like to purchase an FS-60CB for imaging with a C-0.72x (TRD0060) reducer. What is the back focus of the reducer and what thread does it have on the camera side?
What adapters do I need to attach my ASI-1600 camera, filter wheel and OAG (M42 or M48 thread, 43mm back focus) to the FS-60CB when using the Takahashi Reducer-C 0.72X? Is it possible? Is it recommended?
What do I need to connect my canon 6D?
