When you use the 9mm to get 266X mag, i assume your scope is 1200mm and youre using a 2X Barlow right? I have spotted the red dot (look like a pin *BLEEP* in the second band) at 240X once under good seeing skies at day break. So that magnification should be good. Granted I use an 8" so maybe That makes a difference

Ha posting on the forum using an IPhone has its obvious drawbacks.
I meant to say it looked like a little pin dot.
A distinct pin dot though. Not a bleep one. Weird

I was viewing Jupiter early Sunday morning in a nicely calm atmosphere. The bands were surprisingly dark and prominant. I should have checked but one of the moons was just about at the limb and going either behind or coming out at that point.
