Meade 12" F8 ACF Reducer

Hi Guys,
I posted this thread in the Equipment forum, it should really be in this one.

I'm looking at getting a Reducer for my Meade 12" F8 ACF. I have tried the Optec Lepus 0.62x and it does work, but the vignetting on my Canon 600D with cold finger, is not good. I'm seriously thinking of trying an Astrophysics 27TVPH.

Any one out there (or knows someone), who is using one of the new Meade F8 AFC's with a focal reducer and getting good results, I would love to hear about it.

One waste enormous amounts of money in this hobby, trying things that don't work.

I'm also interesting in the answer to this question but more so for a GSO RC telescope in the 10" to 12" range.

Hope someone can answer it!

I'm interested too - for the same reasons.

Could you post a pic from the setup which shows the vigneting?
