 I had my single tilt etalon Lunt 60 and Coronado 90 III with one etalon on out today with some good seeing. I didn't know the AR was there and didn't it in either scope but spent almost all the time looking at the proms.  Will try Tuesday maybe with 2 etalons on the Coronado but that's awfully small.

All I see is a slightly darkened area a little bigger than a pore but it's grey, like a penumbra, not black like a spot. I see hot spots around it but nothing impressive. I have unusually good seeing right now and can see granulation quite well. 8" f5.9 dob with homemade baader filter.

 I saw it this AM in my Coronado 90 III with one etalon at 115X-135X!  Seeing is very good with high thin clouds increasing surface contrast. It's small, very small. David

Looking at it now in wl, it is so tiny it pops in and out with seeing. It can be very easily missed if you don't know exactly where to look. It's a pinprick @ 100× mag.
