      Dear Gordon.

      WE would suggest you to take many different photo shots with FlatIV and keep changing the

       setting b/w 66 and 86mm, then you can choose the best shot and that will be the best suited 

      setting for your setup.

      Regards,

      Dear Sir,

      I have a Megrez 120 and a field Flattener 4. Would you be able to advise the optimum setting for the FF4 please?

      I am very satisfied with both of these high quality products. Well done William Opitcs.

      Yours faithfully,

From the WO website the 76.8mm is for 98FLT as the scope gets larger(110FLT=73.5mm, 132FLT=71.5) the distance decreases, however the site does not list the distance for the Megrez 120 from what I saw. Just to be clear you are talking about WO Flat-IV? If so the spacer/extender you would need is flexable when set at 66 the glass is 14.1mm 76 24.1mm and 86 34.8mm. It would then seem your setup as:
        > 8300 17.5mm
        > FW8 8.89mm
        > Flat IV 14.1-34.8mm
        >
        > So your setup is roughly 40.49mm-61.19mm Since there is no distance that I could find on the WO site for your scope using the middle of the FLT110&132 72.5 roughly...it would seem that a spacer/extender in the range of 11-32mm.
