So this is my first DSL pick with an eyepiece.  There were a bunch, but this was the best one.  I was on a polarized mount, a Meade 8" SCT, 25mm plossel, moon filter and Pentex K3.  I struggled with all the beginner stuff.  I had struggled with focusing, setup, but that was why I started with the moon.  Biggest issue I had is how to dim the center of the moon while keeping the outer areas bright enough.
