The Astro-Tech AT65EDQ provides an exceptionally flat and wide field for deep space imaging, with no need for a separate field flattener. While designed primarily as an astrograph, it can also be used visually with a 1.25" star diagonal and eyepieces. Because of the very close proximity of the field flattening singlet lens to the focuser, the AT65EDQ cannot be used with a 2" star diagonal.
