I used it for the first time today, setting the finderscope to a terrestrial object during daylight hours.
At about 11PM I did my first nighttime viewing and used a Panoptic 41. The sky was not pitch black as I live a mile to the north of a prairie city and there was not much to look at, but any star I viewed never came completely into focus. I have terrible astigmatism and I saw tiny triangles around any star I looked at. No moon or planets to view so I packed in in for the evening after being quite disappointed with the experience.
Could my scope be having a collimation problem or is it an eyesight issue? I have not had a scope for over 20 years and my old C8's never seemed to do this. I know my vision has gotten worse but I wear glasses which I removed for some of the viewing.
Would appreciate any insight. Wish I had better eyesight as well. LOL!
