Quote:Thank you guys for your comments! I can only make do with what the atmosphere gives me...and seeing really did cooperate that night. When I get home tomorrow, I am going to process another one to see if it's any better. I also have some ganymede data to process. Also I figured I'd ask here, but has anyone had any problems with dew inside their scts recently (on the inside of the corrector)? I've never had this problem before...but recently I've seen it twice. I use a homemade lymax cooler and I think it might be the culprit, but it works too well to give up. Any ideas for solutions?
