Amazingly, it was clear. Until just after 9PM, when the marine layer started rolling in.
I got the new scope up on the mount -- it just barely balances in RA (I have another counterweight coming, too!). DEC was no problem, without the imaging train.
Visual views of the moon and Jupiter were very pleasing. I had checked the collimation with my laser earlier, and it looked awfully good. One little tweak to the primary. Not bad after all the shipping it went through. The moon with a 9mm Plossl showed nice detail, but I could tell the softness due to coma was visible as you moved out. After about 30 minutes on the mount, I swung over to Jupiter...3 nice moons all lined up, belts visible. Popped in a 4mm Lanthanum eyepiece, and that was a bit much for Jupiter's low altitude and the tube currents I could see (this scope in warm weather is going to need more than 30 minutes cool-down). But still was able to get a reasonably sharp image, and see detail on Jupiter.
So I quickly tossed on the T3i, and took a couple of quick moon shots: ISO 400, 1/800th sec f/4. With a camera at prime-focus the non-flat field is obvious, but still plenty of detail. One (non-stacked) shot below.
It's been some time since I observed visually at all, and even longer since I did so through anything bigger than 61mm. This was fun! Can't wait to get all the extra goodies (coma corrector, counterweights, dovetails) to get it fully set up for imaging!
