Thanks, Michael. The telescope on my EBBCO (which is 45 years old) seems excellent for its purpose. It is a Galilean type, about 2.5x, and I don’t see any chromatic aberration at all. My problem is definitely the filters.

I've just bought an Ebbco, intending to use it as a class demo piece. . . .
The snag for me is the telescope itself - there's a lot of chromatic abberation. If all your shades appear to have 'gone off', it may be the telescope that's the root cause.
