I had seen that information before on another site. The standard spool claims 'The FSQ-85ED also features a newly designed focuser with built-in fine focuser, made for imaging with medium format CCD cameras. This 72mm focuser had been designed to handle CCD and digital SLR cameras with great rigidity.'

The STL would be considered a large format camera but some other forums talk about an adapter and spacer that suits (I have not found the exact details yet). I have seen pictures of this setup but no one talks about any problems they have found.

The field should be flat and colour free, the only issue is holding the camera and how much (if any) vignetting there would be.
