I am very excited to see that you are coming out with a 2" 0.8
flattener/reducer for your scopes.
My main concern is to find out what the physical interface will be on
both the telescope and the camera ends. I am currently using a WO
105mm scope with an SBIG STL-11000XM CCD. SBIG has moved away from
the T-thread on the camera to avoid the vignetting their new big
chips by the time the light passes through the internal color filter
It would be great if the enclosure for the flattener/reducer were
large enough to thread directly into the STL cameras, or if there
were two options for the camera end, one with standard t-thread and
the other the larger one.
Thank you for your consideration,
