Taken in bicolour narrowband.
I tried to recapture my previous image of the nebula, but this time with a larger field of view.
Yes, my FF for the ZS66 is the Baader MPCC! Although the sensor is pretty small, stars on the edges are still pretty round. Craig Stark's previous tests showed some chromatic aberration when using the MPCC, but it seems to be negligible when you're shooting narrowband.
It was worth a try, next time I'll have a look at shooting broadband through it,
