Finally got to properly see if my adjusting and working the joints of my RAO 50x500 would pay off.
While I still can't properly manage the gunbarrel sights on the scope, I did, through dumb luck spot something unexpected, ρ Eri, seeing it sharply enough to be able to tell it wasn't a single star, though not magnified enough to see the split between ρ Eri A and ρ Eri B.
I'd been trying to line the scope up on Achernar.
It was checking Stellarium and Sky Safari 6, after the clouds moved in and forced me to give up on viewing for the night, that I was able to ID what I'd seen, of the stars nearby.
