A light box is needed to take optical flat field images to adjust for vignetting or small dust spots on your optics. This one is made for a Meade 10" LX-200 f/10, so a few minor adjustments may be needed for another setup. This can also be used when you use a 35mm camera lens on your astronomical CCD.

Here is a PDF file of the construction details for the light box. It includes a material list and dimensions for all the parts. Click on the image to download the PDF file.
