Orion Field Flattener

Need to purchase a field flattener for an Explore Scientific ES ED102 f/7.

Seen one on Bintel, Orion brand? How would this stand up being used with this scope?

The ES is going to be one of my main imaging scopes.

Many thanks in advance.

Paul

As the specs say it is suitable for these type of scopes, it slides into the 2 inch adapter on the scope

make sure you use 55mm spacing from the flattener to your camera's sensor.
