sensor tilt

Post by suvowner » Tue Nov 26, 2019 9:34 pm

why don't your other cameras like the asi1600 or asi183 have the built in tilt adjustment like the 1071 ?

could my existing asi183 be retrofitted with a built in tilt adaptor like the 1071 ?

Sensor tilt is more obvious in larger sensor, since ASI071 has APS-C frame, it is larger than ASI1600 and ASI183 sensor, so there is built-in tilter.
For ASI183MC Pro, you can add this T2-Tilter.

thanks but I tired the t2 tilter and it won't solve mt problem. imaging at f/2 with hyper star is the problem and the 183 is the most ideal camera due to its small pixels.

In fast ratio system with small pixels, the sensor tilt will be more obvious.

Exactly, which is why I wish the 183 had an easy way to adjust its sensor tilt in my f1.9/390mm c8 hyperstar system.

perhaps a t2 tilter with all internal screws, similar to the tilter on the front of the 1071.

Agreed, the FASTAR and RASA users need a tilt solution. Until then is there any solution other users have found?
