Last night was about my 10th try to find that little bugger hanging out in the diffraction ring. I had tried repeatedly and without success with my 120mm ED. I've tried before with my 8", even on an EQ platform a few nights ago. This time I managed to see it with the 8" at an ungodly 498x without the EQ, so constant nudging and then allowing it to drift (if the drifting was near rapids) . I would call it my "great white whale", but it's more like a tiny white pimple.
You'd expect the 8" should easily split it, if I could just get improved seeing.
