Quote:Hi Jon, thanks for taking the time to reply. From what you are saying, the different colors are in the eyepiece. From my experiences the actual color has more to do with the design of the refractor optics. Of course it is a result of using wide field eyepieces. I'm still trying to get my head around this. Could it be that the scopes aren't really designed to be used with such wide eyepieces? I don't generally look at the moon in wide field eyepieces, they were purchased for deep sky. However, on occasion I'll throw one in for friends and family. Perhaps it's time for a plossil or two.All of this isn't really an issue for me just an observation and a little food for thought. See what happens when there's three months of cloud Faron
