Celestron EdgeHD11 Reducer / Pegasus Astro Powerbox

I require both of these.

Worth the money getting the Celestron version. The reducer is massive in size and is perfectly matched to the Edge 11 optics. You may find it hard finding anyone contemplating giving their reducer up unless they are selling all their gear or switching over to planetary.
Your other alternative is the Optec Lepus HD Telecompresor. It is considerably cheaper but is more fiddly as it uses specific camera mounts and gives 100mm back focus compared to 105mm for Celestron reducer.

Thanks for the advice Greg, yep am only interested in the Celestron reducer and I had the same suspicion about finding one second hand! Long shot me thinks.

you have to get the celestron one for the edge.

I went for the 8" edge as I keep it in the car and larger was useless for camping the FR is VERY nice
