The View: Popped in an eyepiece that gave 150x to find Jupiter and align finder, and thought OH-OH?! There was alot of blue fringing around Jupiter for such a low power. The Jaegers I've built previously had almost no blueing at low to medium powers, and they got progressively worse as you increased magnifications.
This R30 Istar gets better, less fringing, as you increase powers. At 200x the blue haze is about equal to a regular achromat. At last nights atmospheric limit of 250x with a 4mm Radian there was almost no blue haze around the edges of Jupiter. Can't hardly wait for a real steady night to see how much power this lens can handle. Who says you need an APO?
