Every day our eyes catch the light of our memories – time spent with family, the journey to work, a special holiday, a beautiful sunset or a dark starlit night. Each image captured is a picture drawn in light – a photograph: only to be lost in our minds or forever forgotten. Nearly two hundred years ago a small group of amateur scientists achieved what had eluded mankind for centuries – the ability to capture a permanent record of an image seen by their own eyes – a moment in time frozen onto a surface. They had discovered Photography. They were the ‘Catchers of the Light’.

Williams Optics FLT 110 CCD Inspector Results

Field Curvature Map



3-D Viewer - Edge view

These are the typical CCDInspector2 results with the SBIG ST10XME camera used on the FLT110 OTA with TMB dedicated field flattener.
These examples were taken from an imaging session of M27 through the Baader Planetarium luminance filter.
The results show a very flat field.The sensor size is 14.9 x 10 mm with 6.8x6.8 microns pixels.

The CCDInspector2 from CCDWare is a wonderful program!!!!
