Quote:A third dust lane? "Easily" Ah, you don't need good seeing! If you did, you'd have your cake and eat it too. No matter how hard I try, I know that's just not possible. Yea, it helps to have a plan. Without one, I spend two hours trying to figure out what to look at. heheAs for Eta Cas, look at all those stars in the FOV. I hope you don't mind (after the fact) if I post mine to compare. I think there s a J component that was too dim for 6" aperture on that night.Well done, Jason. Try AR Cas next. There's a double there you might be able to split.
Quote:Darn, Chop, I cannot see even a quarter of what your seeing through my dinky 90mm. I agree with Norme, great FOV and starfield. Heck, your rough sketch is a regular work of art compared to the scribbles that I produce.Ready to tag a few carbons? -stray-
Quote:I kind of lost track of your scope build, it seems you completed it? Are you still posting to that site? Link?
Quote:I really appreciate seeing each step in producing the final job ( which is lovely ). Thank you!
