In order to get professional images, you need to calibrate your raw images with a flat frame. In fact, your photographic system will produce an uneven response caused by: 

  • Sensor inhomogeneous response (pixels that are more or less sensitive to light)
  • Optical vignetting (image is darker away from the centre)
  • Dust on the sensor window (seen as 'donut' shaped spots on the image)
  • Internal reflections

To generate a flat frame, you need a homogeneous illuminated screen. Commercial LED panels are unsuitable for this task as they are excessively bright, often not dimmable and frequently have a colour dominance.


The Geoptik flat field panel is the perfect light source to generate a professional flat field with your camera:

  • it has a build in rheostat to adjust the light intensity
  • it is powered by 12V (a cigarette lighter plug is included)
  • it has a balanced spectral emission to avoid colour dominants
  • three nylon screws allow to secure the flat field generator on any telescope inclination
  • the rim around the generator reduces the white light disturbance (a must have in star parties where white lights are prohibited).
