The FA*200/4 macro seems fine for Astro [pic]

Difficult to focus perfectly, I used a focus mask. This is Carina Nebula with the K5.

Just 20s exposures at f/4, total of 24min stacked with DSS. My PP is not the best.

And a crop:

It's not perfect, there's a bit of blue fringing on the brightest white stars, but I'm pleased. Nicer than the K200/2.5 which has orange and... another colour fringing.

The FA*400/5.6 has a bit more fringing. My PP a bit dodgy, looks blue.

15s exposures, just 5min15s total. I hope I haven't posted this before.

Lagoon and Triffid nebulae with Mars.
