Woke up early this morning to some finally clear skies. I had already set up the Genesis in the garage to help with acclimation in anticipation of a possibly clear morning and was rewarded. Got a chance to try out the new 9x50 finder and Focusmate 2 speed focuser and I must say I was very pleased with both. Especially the focuser. Made focusing at higher powers a breeze and is very smooth. While viewing I took in the ring nebula, Albireo (just beautiful), Jupiter, Saturn and Mars this morning. The new focuser really made focusing the Jup’s bands easy. Set up the Nikon for a nice photo op capturing the planetary trifecta in the background. Coffee was good too! All in all a great morning!
Approx 60 sec exposure, sorry for the trailing.
