    130mm dia./1000mm focal length (F/7.7) Apochromatic refractor.

    "First light" :dance: is the "Pillars of Life" made popular by Hubble...
    The center of the image contains the region made famous by the HST. This is in "real" RGB colour.

    No CA if you spend the right amount of money. :mrgreen:

    Takahashi is known for thier colour correction, wspecially in the "Othro Apochromatic" series. I have yet to image a really bright star to see just how well it is corrected, but I haven't seen any yet.
