    I have noticed its preferences for red coloring. What struck me, even in my LP-skies, was some slightly spotty background. Until I realized that I was looking at tiny stars in the background-glow of the Milky Way in Cygnus...
    For further DSO observing I am going to use this instrument.

    Like you said, you will be better off with a longer refractor than this one for Luna and Planets.
    When I stop this one down to 110mm ( it becomes a f/6.8 system), I have fair image on solar system members. But it still doesn't come near its 100 mm f/9, or longer brothers and sisters. On Moon and planets, that is.
