Any chance you are using the TMB flattener?
I have the FLT-110, TMB flattener, WO STL adapter, and STL-11000.
Unfortunately I am getting significant field distortion in the
corners of the images.
WO claims the flattener and adapter were optimized for the STL but
they have not responded since I sent the images for evaluation.
Are you, or anyone else, getting good results with the TMB FF and STL?
The focuser on the FLT-110 is more robust than the 2" crayfords I
have from several well known manufacturers. The heavy camera does not
rock the WO focuser and a robofocus motor is very easy to install, V
curves are almost perfect and the tension adjustment is a non-issue.
