About this product
Part Number: FLAP100-103-82-W112.2_WO-GRA NTURISMO-GT81
Making flats can be quite cumbersome, especially if you stride towards automation and simplification of the process. The DAD flap panel ensures making flat frames with your refractor telescope is part of your automated routine, without hacks like LCD screens, sky with T-shirt etc.
While you image, the flap panel is neatly tucked away next to the refractor tube. When you finish imaging, you simply close it up and turn on (dimmable) LED light. You can adjust the brightness according to your camera responsiveness/gain settings and different filters.
DAD also offer an optional built in heater to keep dew at bay, so you do not need an extra heating strip!

|Average Rating (1 Review): |Not a review, but great idea! Would love one of these with a Bahtinov mask instead of a flat panel

I have no purchased this, but love the idea. As someone who has automated almost everything on my rig, the only part remaining is the manual act of putting the bahtinov mask on the end of the scope, focussing, then removing it for imaging. This would be able to automate that task too, assuming the flat panel could be removed (I don't actually use flats on my GT81, the FOV with my ASI533 is flat enough) .. so if DSD is reading this, I'd be interested in beta testing a bahtinov mask version !
