Markus, a friend of mine, owns a same telescope and he is also very convinced about its capabilities and its overall quality. After inspecting Markus's scope a couple of days later, I had the impression (better said "I was quite sure") that the factory producing this telescope (AstroProfessional) has a well organized test team with competent test engineers, and a serious quality assurance department.
There is a dedicated 3 inches flattener for this beautiful scope. To be honest, I am not a fan of focal reducers, since most of them introduce chromatic aberrations, and spot sizes having unequal thickness across the field. Also vignetting could be an issue with most reducers if you are working with large camera chips. So I think the best way to work with a scope is by using its dedicated flattener at its native focal length! Hence, if you want to work with two focal lengths, I honestly recommend you to buy two scopes ;-) A short one and a long one :-)
Anyway, I've heard there is a good reducer called Ricardi reducer (click here) able to work with this scope but I don't have any experience with it. For sure the dedicated flattener (click here) gives you the tightest spot size across the field by also keeping most of the optical capabilities of the scope.
The photo above confirms my visual experience I reported above. The Umbra and Penumbra regions of the Sun spots were clearly and with high contrast visible at all magnifications up to 105x. Holger and me were gazing the Sun for many hours before we decided to end our observation session.
Conclusion: I have never observed the Sun so brilliant at this price tag.
This scope is a fun to use and highly recommended.
Thanks for reading.
