Quote:Unless the refractor is an APO/has ED glass, you'll have CA (purple fringing) on planets and bright objects. Beautiful Truss Newt, hadn't heard of that company, you'll have to let us know how the scope performs. That mount does look a little light for that big of a scope (even though its a truss and withing the mounts weight limit), especially if going for AP. It looks like a CG-4?
