Nice shot, but where's the CA I remember from owning one of these??

Is this BW only?

yes, it's changed to monchromatic to hide the chromatic abberation of the Ranger, not serious, but enough to be discernable at higher power moon shot.

Whew! Fer a minute there, I thought my old ranger had really really bad optics... <g>

It surely is a nice pic. What kind of camera were/are you using?

ToUCam Pro, but webcam is not so good for moon imaging, the dynamic range is too narrow.
