I placed one filter on bottom and one filter in tilter
I used a WO 66mm SD

on screen tilting filter changes brightness
seeing was bad but I got this interesting result
will keep posting as I try different options

with too much of a tilt you get double image at end but shows area of interest fading out
I did not note exact angles

another tilt angle

I think this(skybender) can be useful to fine tune into a specific area
there could be a price in that total area may not be 100% uniform across entire field due to internal reflections

Hi John

interesting results. With 66 mm you should get crackling pics even in bad seeing conditions
Only stardust in the wind, some fine and some less fine scopes, filters and adapters as well. Switzerland 47 N, 9 E, in the heart of EUROPE :)

Interesting results, but the lines in image one and two suggest astigmatism to me. What camera are you using?
