A flattener (glass) is recommended for larger sensors on my RC, but I get away without one. Assuming your correct that glass introduces aberrations, then thats one problem I dont have, so that must be an advantage on an RC not available on other designs I guess.

I dont know if not having glass makes any other difference. I focus every 2 weeks or so, does glass itself cause focus change with temperature?.

I wonder if a flattener would give you even sharper images
especially off axis?

Focus every 2 weeks?
I thought some people were using FocusMax & changing focus with
every filter & sometimes between frames?
Those electric focusers can have steps smaller than 5 microns.

I don't know about focus with a flattener & other glass versus temperatures.
