I'll keep simple and short.I put the scope on camera tripod and set it outside to cool down for approx. one hour. Went out around 9:20 and observed for 30 min or so.
Saturn was too low so mars was it. The seeing was better tonight but more like a slow boil then rapid turbulence. I didn't bother with low powers since mars is so small now 12.1 arc seconds. First the 10mm Clave at 100x small but sharp and focus snap (if that means anything) was very pronounced. Then the 7mm Nagler, very sharp edge, some surface markings and a tiny white spot for the polar cap. Then the 5mm Nagler at 200x and it remained very sharp despites the slow boiling atmosphere. Surface markings were more obvious and it looked there's a dark area at the edge of the polar cap, like eyeliner. That's 50x per inch on an SCT and the view just got better as I increased the power from 100x to 200x. As silly as it may sound, the view reminded me of the little Questar 3.5.
The double double was clearly split with a tiny diffraction ring and them. M57 was easily seen as a ring in the 15 Wide angle TV. My favorite was the double cluster with the Meade 24.5mm Superwide at 41x...awesome view and sharp to the edge.
Star test on Altair was excellent better than many SCT's I've tested and there have many. I was impressed with this little SCT. May be the best $85 I spent on a scope.
Too bad Jupiter is not around. With better seeing conditions and as bright as Jupiter is it should be nice view. So, is this little SCT a good one? Without a shadow of a doubt!
