No.

It means that the effective focal length is 1764mm, and the focal plane is now flat across the whole field.

The Edge 11 has a flat focal plane from the very start at its native focal length of 2800mm.

I know how confusing it can get. Best to think of the Edge scopes and the standard SCT's as two totally different systems, each with its own set of optical features/differences. They look similar, but that's where the similarities end. Much in the same way as with Maksutovs, RC's and Dall Kirkhams - these are also all Cassegrain telescopes, but all make use of different design variations and all have their own photo accessories that are not interchangeable (except for barlow lenses).
