I think for DSO this binoscope is great but not for bright objects. My GT80~45 also has some CA in viewing the moon. It does not interfere with image clarity, but it is still more evident than in my other binoculars. I called Zach Garrett and talked to him about it. He recommended 25% neutral density filters to improve this problem and he was right. It's a lot better but I must tell you not 100% eliminated. However, I'm much happier and I use them all the time. You can buy them from Garret, Orion, or Agena. They are not expensive. IMHO, buy your new baby some moonglasses. [/url]SV
