Description

Alnitak Astrosystems Devices

For those on a budget who don’t need the robotic features of the Flip-Flat, the Flat-Man is an excellent choice. Employing the same EL lamp technology as in the Flip-Flat and powered by a single USB cable, the Flat-Man is simple to use.  The Flat-Man is manually placed on the vertically oriented OTA and the lamp brightness levels can be  controlled via the attached PC.

OTA's up to 6-inch (155mm) are supported with the Flat-Man.  For larger scopes, the Flat-Man L is available for manual or remote flat field calibrations.  

The Flat-Man L is the big brother of the Flat-Man, for telescopes in the 8-12.5" range. The Flat-Man L uses the same electroluminescent technology as our other products, and can either be manually placed on the vertical OTA or hung perpendicular (using one of the #6-32 cover screw holes) to the OTA’s park position for flat field imaging.

Our Windows XP software will light and control the brightness of the Flat-Man L. Comes with USB cable and power supply.

The Flat-Man L is an affordable means to achieve excellent flat fields for telescopes up to 12-1/2" diameter.
