I wonder if it would be hard to make/buy a flattener for my C11 to be used at F/10... The 6.3 reducer/corrector flattens the field nicely, but also drops it back to F/6.3... F/10 + flat field would be nice...
No - taking the optics out and reconfigering them in new tube to make truely fast schmidt cameras (f1.2) alomg the same lines as Kevcool's camera (after respacing the corrector and primary and installing a field corrector lens and small footprint CCD camera at the primary's prime focus.
