I'm just curious if anyone has tried using a 8" RASA and ASi2600MC/QHY268C?  Given that the diagonal of the sensor is 28mm and the corrected field of the RASA is only 22mm, I would expect a fair amount of eccentricity in the outside 20% of the image.  I'd love to see some pics if anyone has them.

I did and so have other folks like APShooter. Works well.

Look for my posts.

Thanks, but I'm finding it difficult to locate images by you or APShooter; CN doesn't make that very easy.  I found one image by APShooter that I know was made with this combo.  Other than that I'm coming up short.  What I'd really like to see are some raw images, unprocessed and uncropped.
