Can someone recomend a field flattener that is not a reducer.

HI Guys.

I have an orion Reftactor f7 and I image with a 5D MKIIm with a WO P4 field flattener that is also a 1.8 or 1.6 reducer. As the 5D is full frame it leaves my image scale rather small. So I'm looking at getting a good quality flattner for my scope that does not decrease my image scale.

Can anyone make any recomendations?

Thankt.

I use the Astro Tech 2" field flattener and am very happy with it. You can buy it direct for about $160 I think.

TS make a great one but it is more $$
