Thought this would be good for a rich field short f-ratio finder or telescope.


 


Apparently most camera lenses are very well corrected at very short f-ratios and should therefore give an excellent aberation free wide field view when used with a high quality eyepiece.


 


He states that a barlow is required to extend the focal plane if a diagonal is to be used.


 


I thought this was a great new idea, but someone will probably tell me that FLO has been selling them for years :D ...
