I can *barely* see separation of the different peaks in Aristillis tonight. My C14 was affected by poos seeing, and so I could actually make out more with the FS 128. In the FS 128 was using a barlow and a leica zoom. For the "lunatic" crowd, is seeing separation of the peaks a challenge object, or a routine event?

Im no expert on Aristillus but Im sure you've seen something that 95% of amateur astromoners havent.

Keep observing this feature and see it at different illuminations.

Good Luck
