I imagine many EAA observes like to set their gear up on decks, conveniently outside their warm and bug-free homes. I’m sure many folks have noticed how the object image on our screens jumps a bit if we move around in the vicinity of our scopes while focusing, installing dew caps, or just getting up to refill coffee cups while we’re stacking. It’s unclear to me how much this degrades our images but I suspect it does to some degree.
If if anyone has experienced this and addressed the issue, I’d be very interested in learning from you:
1. How or if, this vibration effects image capture while stacking?
2. What measures, other than moving the scopes to a more solid location, can be taken to manage vibration and what specific products, if any, work best to reduce vibration?
I’ve attached an image of my situation. Thank you for any comments or suggestions.
