Both the Riccardi and Starizona reducer can work well with the esprit 100 but I would be reluctant to recommend the Starizona. At f3.5, spacing and tilt become critical to getting a flat Image. So unless you can fit a tilt ring in your imaging train be wary of such a harsh reduction. Unfortunately the Riccardi isn't as easy to use with the esprit, It needs at least two adapters from ts optics to work with the esprit and might actually be cheaper to get one made from your local machine shop. Long story short I'd recommend you grab all the shots that fit nicely in your fov for now and wait for a good deal on a 2600 and sell (or keep) the 183mc.
