New 8SE owner. I have found planetary observation quite jittery. I realize part of this is the low alt locations of Jupiter and Saturn right now, but my 4.5" reflector should not be giving me more stable views than the 8se. I've ordered vibration suppression pads. Any other suggestions. Haven't had a chance to view a 1/4 moon yet.
How many 8se owners have added motor focusers and how much did it alleviate the problem?
Also wondering about Celestron 6.3 focal reducer/corrector. What viewing advantages would this provide? The scope I ordered comes with the 2" eyepiece kit, but these are backordered until mid September.
