I was reading through the forums this morning and this comment really hit home with me in a very meaningful way, not just for this thread, but for many. It's understandable for an observer to want color free images, but to write scopes off because they exhibit some false color is one of the number one mistakes I see so many making lately because that's all they're looking for. This is what Thomas Back understood so well that has sadly gotten lost in some remote corner of the cosmos. If others are not using the telescope in other meaningful ways, then they are not getting the full story of the quality of the optics.
I used an Orion 120 mm f8.3 for years (still like this scope!). I remember some great nights and views I've had with this scope, but I can't remember the CA in those views.
