This was only a short observation but here it is!!
I finally was able to use my scope under the sky. My first target was Saturn. I thought it looked great in my ed 100 but this was at 216x (12.5 U.O. ortho volcano)WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!
There it just floating there with the ring going across the planet so extremely sharp that it was amazing. There was a band that I'm not sure if it's a band or the shadow of the ring. It was always there in the ed 100 but it was painted on in this scope.
Quickly to a star which showed a nice star test but somthing I'm no expert on.
Seeing was crummy crummy. A fuzzy layer of clouds coming and going and a neighbors bright bright bright back yard light to boot.
Thanx Mark from TETON
