It is pretty great with the 4.5* field. Having binos with the same view would be genius.

They were comfortable all the way to zenith.
With a parallelogram mount the need for angled oculars is reduced.
Having the P-gram will help, but the 45 deg. binocs would be MUCH better for sure!
I was so impressed with the view, that I'm seriously concidering building some 6" versions. I'd use these IStar 6" F5 objectives.

The skyglow from yakima is still huge,20 miles away.The entire South East is awash in light a good 30* up from the horizon.

I still got to have clear sky and do some imaging!
After much post processing and a decision that I will likely have to start from scratch and re-stack with more flat frames... here is the results from last night.
25 X 5 minutes with the Quantix KAF6303E on my AT6RC

Kerry, those 6" apo binocular telescopes are drool worthy. I could never see myself buying them because I would have a D14 instead but, I would gladly look through yours:-P

There is no place in Washington forecasted for anything but rain or snow(depending on elevation). Table mountain is showing snow for the forecast. Moscow Idaho, Vantage Wa, Winthrop Wa, Western Wa... all shows rain or a chance of. X-p
:shocked:Not even Winthrop? lol
