The Meade & Celestron F6.3 reducers will work a treat. Just make sure you have the camera sensor at the correct distance from the reducer to optimise your reduction & field flattening.

The Alan Gee reducer looks nice and Celestron probably liked the idea so much they introduced a similar type in their Edge scopes. But the Alan Gee reducer is a bit of unknown and is not a field flattener. I also think there may be issues using this reducer with a crayford rear cell focuser...not sure though.

So best bet ATM is to stay with the Meade/Celestron reducers.
