Quote:So what is the difference between a standard C8 with the standard focal reducer and the Edge with focal reducer? If the standard setup already has a flattener built in I would think they have similar results.....

Quote:The original Celestron F6.3 FF/FR didn't adequately flatten the corners of an aps-c sensor. Although we don't yet know if the Edge FR will, I expect it will.

You must be producing very tiny high resolution stars, since I've NEVER had problems with stars in the corners of an APS-C frame. Hell, the R/C was designed for 35mm film, after all and worked pretty well with it...
