paul Posted March 27, 2021 Share Posted March 27, 2021 My supplier sent a replacement for the flattener shipped with the scope - you can see the issues I had here. The replacement suffered the same issue 🥵- focusing on a daytime target I confirmed that again the x0.8 flattener was more like x1.1. On a whim I swapped the two end caps around and tested again - x0.8 reduction! I ran a few start tests tonight and great image quality across the field with some coma to the top and left which may be due to a loose end cap allowing some tilt: This is a single 3min shot with a DSLR and M48 adapter, no spacing adjustments yet made. (The moon didn't make broadband a good choice but its only a test). As well as decent images, the scope is now more compact as it reaches focus around the 1cm mark. I'm pleased with the outcome, not pleased I wasted a few good nights though. I can't wait for a moonless clear night to really enjoy the scope. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
