One user states:
"Correction is so good, that I have also used the telescope for stellar and lunar photography - a use for which I had not originally purchased this Vixen Telescope." The NA140 "has excellent imagery across the field of the Canon DSLR but seems to have little or no apparent lateral color error. Its low weight for its aperture, easy portability and excellent medium focal length and fast f-ratio make it the perfect ''one telescope does it all'' product."
