Included with the flattener are interchangeable M42 and M48 adapters for maximum compatibility with your imaging system. On the telescope side, the flattener is a push fit 2" that is threaded to accept all standard 2" filters, such as light pollution narrowband filters.
This fully multi-coated flattener has a clear aperture of 38mm.
