People have read reviews that there is this purple around planets and bright stars. I have seen it when I've taken the scope outside, placed it on the ground and removed the dew shield. Then after waiting a minute or two, I looked at Jupiter and saw some purple around it. No kidding. However, after waiting 15 to 20 minutes (meanwhile the temperature this winter is frickin -5 to 5 degrees) the purple goes away. It does come back ever so slightly if I use the Orion 3x barlow but not with my televue big barlow. And mind you all, I have crappy eyepieces. My best is either the 40mm 2" optiluxe or 26mm televue plossl. The rest are orion or meade plossls.
