i also own an antares shorty 2x barlow and it works great with that scope. I was really surprised not to have CA looking at the moon with that f/4 scope, just like you experienced.
Great scope, and it works like a charm with nagler and panoptic EPs.

Isn't this one from China as well? with a pit stop in CA before being sold?

I have spoken to Vic personally on the subject of QC.. He gets the imports from China.. Inspects everything.. Then sends all the duds back. This is why the inventory fluctuates and sometimes models are not available. But it also means you get the best of the batch when you buy from Stellarvue. The premium APO scopes are made in Auburn with Rusian optics, so there are different supply issues with that group.
