I love planetary observing with a Starmaster. They are really sharp on planets. The combination of large aperutre and superb optics are just what the Dr. ordered for planets.

This image shows off the scope's capabilities and your skill. I might suggest that you lower the black point a bit to see if you can bring out the Crepe ring.
