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.

Pretty good really. The 2nd one is nice detail at that mag. Wives are good for somethings' I think your the first to use them for processing. Lucky guy.
