hi everyone,

 

 

recently I been testing my 10inch GSO RC10 truss with a Telescope service full frame corrector to use with my 16803 chip ( 52mm ) and the results are very very nice. 

 

I personally don't know any other none-premium (budget) 10inch astro-graph can do the same thing here (besides the 11inch RASA )

 

 

ok here are the results

Thanks very much for posting this. It is exactly the sort of information we need more of.

Wow, I'm totally staggered you can take pictures like that with a 10" telescope.

Nice! I just got a CFF RC with GSO optics, still in the collimation phase - this puts my hopes up high. The mechanics seem very nice, too.

Glad to know you are happy with that scope. How difficult was it to get this point with respect to collimation, and any other tweaking?

Is that the TSRCFlat3?  or the 2?  I also have had great results from the TSRCFlat3 on my GSO 10" RC non-truss.

Very nice!  Do you know what is causing the reflection in the upper right?

It was the 3 inch flattener from TS, I m glad to hear you are happy with it too !

back then I was spending sometime debugging that problem, later I found out it was due to GSO's improper secondary baffle size, there is light leak, to fix this , the secondary baffle need to be narrowed .
