Nothing like a nice night under the stars with your scopes to put a smile on a guys face!

Peter, even though there are many variables involved when pushing a scope, I'll say that I'm VERY happy with both of these scopes. (you get a lot for what you pay for them)
Here in South Florida we are blessed (most of the times) with good to excellent seeing, and I've been able to get at least the 50x per inch, and sometimes more, without a problem... (I use my UO Orthos a lot too)wink


Clear skies, my friend! 8)

Ivan, you were the only imager that night that didn't curse or swear at his gear. I LMAO all night, every time someone cried out, "Sh_t!" or " WHAT the f*#k!"
Looks like we have some new moon nights just ahead, and a well-placed 4th of July! Hope we get some drier weather to celebrate with my friend. I now have my EPs set for the new DOB.
Pic from the same night.
