      It has been a long time since you posted. I am glad to hear the news
      about the TS 2.5 and the TMB92 SS. I have seen many post on other groups
      about finding a FF that will work with this scope.

      Please keep us informed. You mentioned you shifted it 20mm away; what is the
      total FF/chip distance?

      All the best,

      Terry T.

      Answering my own question... Issue solved. Due to the much shorter f-value
      versus the other refractor I had to shift the camera 20mm away from the
      flattener. Now (at least on a brick wall), the combination works *much*
      better. Nice.

      were not up to standard. Perhaps only 50% of the field of view is really
      good. With my EOS 1DmkIV (crop 1.3) that goes up to 80% or so, but still not

      exist? Any suggestions?
