Well, I found that the eyepiece used is critical on how much vigentting one gets. But in taking images of moon, planets, birds, one can live with the view if the 16:9 apect ratio is used. My test setup used a ten dollar bill on a wall at a distance of 8 feet. Using a William Optic 24mm DCL-28 eyepiece attached to a telescope, the following photos were obtained. The Olympus RM-UC1 remote cable was used to trip shutter. Hope to get a photo of moon this weekend.
Note the Velcro buttons to help with grip. Used Lensmate adapter tube, 52-37mm and 37-28mm step-down ring to attach eyepiece.
Alexander Hamilton on 10 dollar bill. Used 16:9 aspect.
