This item is out of stock but you can place an order now and we’ll ship when it becomes available.


When originally conceived, the FSQ-85EDX was meant for use with APS-C or smaller CCD or CMOS chips.  At image circle radii beyond about 14 mm, field curvature was evident in larger chips.  This new flattener will greatly reduce this field curvature, resulting in a practically flat field out to a 22 mm image circle radios. The two spot diagrams below demonstrate the impact of the flattener on field curvature.
