Well, finally fixed my mount and set up my rig last night under clear skies.
Fell asleep on the couch for a few hours and woke up to .... cloud cover! Waah.
So, this morning I tried out my new DIY artificial star. Set it up on a fence post ~100ft from the scope and
checked it out up to 257X (LVW 3.5mm). Optics look great!
Perfect collimation and the in/out of focus rings were virtually identical, showing very little, if any, SA.
Focussing was sharp and it had that "snap" to focus which is very enjoyable.
This looks to be a very nice optic indeed.
