I'm a bit perplexed by Castor being two orange stars though.
Good grief, I am losing my mind. I observed Castor with the Carton 101mm monocular, while I waited on the DX8 to temp adjust. Castor was already in the pollution dome, and the 4" fast lens has some serious CA. Doesn't affect terrestrial views, but star colors are another matter. (In that respect, it's worse than my 4" Jaegers RFT.) If the weather cooperates tonight, I'll try Castor again, and compare the Big Eye to my Telementor. (I'll use any excuse to observe with the Zeiss!)
It was Xi Bootis that I split with the DX8 in the much clearer skies to my east. IIRC, that would have been at 50x, as I tested my "new" Celestron (Tani) KE40. I was rushing, but I know I went from Arcturus, to Xi, to Leo (tried to pick out M65&66 - nope), then south to Jupiter. So my first view of Jupiter in the DX8 was at 50x, and I saw 4 belts. I swapped to the HD OR20 @ 105x, and saw 6 belts. Tried the OR6 @ 352x (hey! it's me!), and couldn't get a decent focus, so dropped to 176x with the OR12. Stayed at 176x for the remainder, and tried to gobble up all the details. There were a lot of those! But honestly, my Tinsley does better. At some point, I'll put on my anti-hernia belt, and lug that beast out with the DX8 for a shoot-out.
I apologize for the confusion. I wanted to jot down my results before I forgot them.
I will make lots of references to the Questar & the Tinsley when reporting on the DX8, as those are currently my most-used folded scopes. When I get the MM6 (Mystery Mak 6) operational, it'll be a better proxy.
One reason I went to Arcturus was the finder. It's an excellent 8x50, but in rushing around yesterday afternoon, I didn't get all its screws set. I re-sighted on Arcturus by looking along the DX8, and got the finder locked in. I confirmed the alignment on Xi, then went galaxy hunting. Didn't see M65&66, but at that angle the DX8 was getting interference from a neighbor's security lights -- gotta get a dew shield!
