Although having said that I did get smallish green halos on bright stars with Astrodon Gen 1 with STL11 which could be annoying at times.

But with the 16803, reflections become more of an issue. I am not 100% clear on why this is as STL11 requires scopes to have a flattener usually as does the 16803. But it definitely started this need for an antireflection coating on the filters that is now usual with the top brands.
