Superb André!

Indeed there's a lot of wind Today in Montréal. Your mount must be quite strong!

Perfect Andre! I could not get an image I was happy with today, glad your interpretation caught all of the subtle details.

Hey thank you so much gentlemen...

Jean, when the wind is strong like today, I let my visor down what reduce to 33" the FOV and protect the scopes from shaking by the wind. Very efficient. The dome is vibrating all around but not the scopes and yes, my mount is heavy duty and solid.

Beautiful Andre,

The wind has been very high in Pennsylvania as well. Hopefully the nice weather will come in soon.

I see a happy face in the top sun spot! Very nice detail
