Meade 0.5x Imaging Focal Reducer (t-threaded)
Convert your scope into a rich field scope with a wide field of view and cut your exposures in half. It has T-threads on both sides, so it will work with any scope and camera combination. And with a t-thread extension tube it can convert an LX-200 down to f/2.5.
Attach your t-threaded camera adapter visual back to your SCT or put whatever t-threaded adapter you use in the focuser of your refractor or your newtonian, etc. Next attach this to the t-adapter you now have in your scope. Then attach your camera to the t-threads on this focal reducer. Voila! you have cut you focal length and exposure times in half and doubled your field of view. Using various length t-threaded extension tubes that you can buy on eb*y you can use just this with an f/10 sct to get down to f/2.5 (the extensions go between this and the camera). Of course, the same principle applies to all scopes. You can also use this in combination with an f/6.3 focal reducer to get f/3.
