Back Focus again
« on: December 23, 2019, 10:12:18 pm »
Hi,  an elderly 11002 in operation and now having issues getting good star field across the chip when attached to a Takahasi Epsilon 180D.

The manual stated back focus 15.5 +/- 0.5 mm.

Is this the mechanical distance to the CCD or is it to  the optical plane of the ccd?

Any thoughts would be welcome .

Hello John,

Sorry we didn't reply sooner! 15.5 mm +/- 0.5 mm is the optical back focus for this camera, this takes into account the thickness of the optical window glass but doesn't take into account the thickness of your filters.

Best regards
