Here is a test image that I did using my Vernonscope Brandon 80mm f/6 refractor and Sony Nex 5N camera. This is a stack of 24 shot in jpeg mode to save space and speed up processing time, although saved as a png.

 

Anyway, just messing around. Lots of blue and green artifacts...I need to update my glasses. I couldn't see that until it was posted. I applied too much color with the sliders in Lightroom.

 

Edit: I just backed off the color and re-posted.

Is this the Brandon Master Birder or some other Brandon scope?

It's the astro-version f/6 triplet. I think it came out in the mid 90s.

I think I need to go back and reprocess it. Lacking pop.

Here is the badging on the side of the f/6 triplet astro-version of the Brandon 80. I have one of the f/5.6 Master Birders too, which I really like because it's so light and great for daytime use and star fields at night. The f/6 version has no false color at all. I really like it a lot!

I used to have the sky blue 92mm Brandon but sold it.  A Brandon anything is quality.

Quite nice. I don't see the color artifacts you are referring to; not at this scale, anyway.

I know what you mean, there's really nice glass in those! I've been on a Brandon kick for the past few years. Here are the three lined up for scale (Vernonscope Brandon Master Birder 80mm f/5.6, Vernonscope Brandon 80mm f/6 triplet, and Vernonscope Brandon 94mm f/7 with the Astro-Physics triplet objective). If the clouds hold off I may give the moon another shot tonight.
