What ever happened to this product? I guess they don't manufacture them anymore?

Apparently the rare earth glass required to make them was no longer available.

Also, the influx of affordable 6" ED Doublets makes the Chromacorr more of a large refractor accessory (8"+) in

which the market is relatively small.

I used mine on a celestron 120 mm refractor for beautiful, CA free views. Now I have a 150 mm refractor to try it on when I get the chance.

I still use my null Chromacorr 1 with my older C6-R. I spent a lot of time tweaking that setup. I really like it, though I tend to grab smaller scopes these days.
