Greetings,
does the use of a wire spider lessen the diffraction spikes?
Is there any relationship to the size of diffraction spikes and the depth (ie. top to bottom size, not thickness of the sheet it was cut from)of the spider or is it only a function of the spiders thickness?
Thanks
Charles
ps. I know about curved, L shapes etc.
