The Baader Planetarium Coma Corrector MPCC enables owners of fast Newtonian telescopes to use their instrument for taking stunning wide-field images, or visually, for delivering wide-field views with stars that remain pinpoint to the edge - with no magnification increase!
The Baader Planetarium Multi Purpose Coma Corrector has been optimized for Newtonians with focal ratios from f/4 to f/6, and will deliver 12micron stars across a full 35mm frame size. Independent optical laboratory tests (by ITE) have confirmed that the MPCC is the sharpest wide-field coma corrector available for imaging, and provides the best edge of field illumination. Visual users have reported great results even down to f/3.7. The optics are anti-reflection coated with the finest 7 layer multi-coatings available. The MPCC is also priced very reasonably. It's modularity lets you purchase only the parts you need. For imaging with DSLRs, only the MPCC is required. For visual, the MPCC can be configured with any of our eyepiece holders or directly coupled to 2" eyepieces using Astro T-2 System components.
NEW- Dob users with f/3.7 - f/5 scopes have been discovering the unique benefits of the MPCC versus other coma correctors. The MPCC can be inexpensively configured for visual use with 1.25" and 2" eyepieces. Please see our MPCC Visual Configuration page for new information on some exciting visual configurations.
The MPCC is the ideal match for today's Digital SLRs. Owners of these new cameras find them to be ideally mated with today's fast f/4-f/5 Newtonians required to keep exposures short. The MPCC enables these users to fully correct their scopes and produce superb pinpoint color deep sky images without the complexity of more expensive CCD astrocameras. Owners of Vixen Newtonians will appreciate the inclusion of filter threads, and the high sharpness of the images. Unlike other coma-correctors, t
