Thanks guys. Silver those are crop dusters parked at the Ardmore Al airport. Just a small grass runway and a few planes. I took those from somewhere between 60 and 100 yards. I didn't measure but that's about right. They were shot right after I got my TCON-17 lens. Same with the horses. Getting a clean shot without the dreaded CA involves positioning yourself at least 90 degrees to the sun. But if you have it directly behind you or in front of you you may get some CA. I also use a Sky 1-A and a polorizing filter to cut reflected light down as that can cause it too, that's why you don't want the sun directly behind you. The CA will show up more readily on white to light colored subjects, but can show up as a white outline on darker subjects. I've seen it look purple to green on tree limbs! It's just a matter of knowing it can happen and taking steps to prevent it.

Who has the polorizing filter that will fit a Tcon?

What you do Silver is mount the filters (55mm ) before mounting the TCON-17. Then you just rotate the TCON clockwise as you face the big end of the lens and the polorizer rotates with it! If you rotate the other way you'll unscrew it!! I put the Sky 1-A on first then the polorizer and then the TCON!
