Hi,

This days, I got my flattener for the TEC110FL.
The frontscrew ( for camera ) is a really stable connection.
But when I try to lose this connection, at first the telescope-connection goes off.
Is there a easy way , to fix the telescop-Screw ?

Thanks

Gerhard

Yahoo TEC group would be a good place to get an answer. I don't know many who have a 110. I have been on the waiting list for one for over a year.

I seriously doubt 800 were built... TEC doesn't mass-produce these things. Maybe 80?

Bob

P.S. I own one. Great scope.

Yuri said 56 in run #1 and a further 24 in run #2 taking it up to 80. Currently in production?!? Field flattener is supposedly an in-stock off-the-shelf item of which I know nothing. I suggest getting on to yahoo groups page at http://groups.yahoo....ations/messages and reading past messages or asking other users.

sorry , thats right , 80 is correct , my memory fails.


Problem solved, the M68 adapter was poorly edited.
The adapter touched the lens mount, but not the flange.

thanks , Gerhard
