Does this make sense. I live in a crazy light polluted area and I can only set up in my backyard surrounded by chimneys etc. Anyway, sometimes I get "e" and most times I don't. Tonight using a 5mm UO volcano ortho (180x) I couldn't get "e" (even when my neighbors crazy automatic light went off ) with my Meade 5000 5.5 (163x) I had a hint of "e". Could it be that the higher hag of 180x dimmed "e" enoungh so as to make it not seeable whereas the 5.5 being at 163x allowed it to be bright enough to just make out?
