0.8x focal reducer for RC8

Going to be a while before I have the spare change for one, but I'm going to be wanting a 0.8x focal reducer for the GSO RC8. Does anyone have any recommendations?

The AP reducer is supposed to be very good. There is a larger reducer they make too that also is supposed to work well, which is called an AP2.7 from memory. I used a Takahashi flattener on my RC8 when I had that and that worked well too.

I am currently using an TS Optical 3" on my RC12 which I have just about sorted out the back focus distance. However they do make a smaller version in 2" that might suit your needs and budget.

Awesome, thanks a lot Paul. The AP looks like a winner to me.
