Many thanks,

that would be my guess. The APO could be spraying out a fair bit of a halo in the violet and still be in spec. Since the FWHM are pretty consistent, it is not likely to be seeing or focus.

The Trius could have more violet sensitivity than the 8300 for a variety of reasons - window material, AR coatings etc. as well as the high QE. Might be worth trying a minus-violet filter or fringe killer in conjunction with LRGB, which is a bit of a pain.
