Description

Image taken with my iStar Asteria 204mm aperture, f/8 refractor. Not an apochromatic, but a pretty good quality lense controls chromatic aberration. According to iStar Optical, this lense reduces chromatic aberration by 35% compared to an achromat of similar size/f ratio.

Image is a combination of Ha, OIII and Luminance data.
