Equipment:

Pentax 125 SDP with dedicated reducer at f 4.9 connected to Finger lakes proline 16803, Takahashi FCT 100 as guide scope using ST 7xe

Description:

This shot was "first light" using my Pentax 125 SDP and it's dedicated reducer. This reducer provides an 88mm fully illuminated image circle at F 4.9, extremely fast for a 5 inch refractor...with the incredible 88 mm image circle. Using this reducer, I'm able to obtain a 206 x 206 arc minute field of view...truely astonishing for a 5" refractor
