Quote:And I am very sure those who have or going to receive the 8" F12 R30, which is now tested and reported by Mike, the CA level should be very much closer or maybe better than my 8" F8.8 with chromacorr II...(just wtg for Mike to take some photos....and put it up in the forum)My advantage is of course a shorter tube, and my G11 is able to handle my 6Ft long Istar.....
... and still the best wife I could wish for!

“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
