    Default Star Test Result

    I get a decent concentric pattern at outside focus, though a little over-corrected. But on inside focus, the image falls apart badly. This situation isn't covered on any web sites I've found. Is there anything that can be done to improve the result?

    What sort of scope? Valery Deryuzhin or Aries Optics had a corrector
    called a SAFIX, you could specify the amount of over/under correction of
    your scope and order the matching SAFIX to rectify the problem. I think
    it was intended for SCT's. They also had a thing called a Chromachor
    which could fix both spherical aberation and chromatic aberation for
    achro refractors (The chromachor cost more than the achro OTA but
    probably still cheaper overall than a genuine APO refractor).
