Hi,

 

I have a nice refractor, something I haven't ever owned in the past. I have a dedicated FF and wondered if you can or would use this for visual use? Or is it just for imaging?

 

Thanks,

Gregory Gig Harbor, WA.

My brain can't seem to compute what you mean by FF

Generally it should not be a problem, but the eye is not flat like film or a sensor so the view will likely not focus across the entire field. Depends on how strong the flattener is and any eye issues you may have.

Thanks,

 

So no point in using one for visuals.
