Very nice image! It does seem, however, that there is some vignetting in the image. Did you apply flats?

Good eyes :-). As I mentioned in the original post, "Dark, no flats." This was a quick test of the Radian filter over a couple of nights at my Bortle 5/Bortle 6 home.

The Borg 71FL has lots of dropoff towards the edges when using the 0.72x reducer/flattener (f/4). It is much better with the 1.08x flattener (i.e., at f/6).

I have since tested the RedCat (white version) and will probably be using the latter for wide fields, while relegating the Borg 71FL to narrower fields.

Sorry, failed to notice that. Still, great image!
