I’ve truly enjoyed reading/re-reading the various excellent threads on attempting to ‘bag’ Plato’s craterlets. It seems tonight, I might have some VG ‘seeing’ and transparency with moderate humidity and slight winds. The projected jet stream winds should not be a factor. If this holds true, then I’m goin’ for craterlets A, B, C & D as true craterlets (hopefully not just Albedo).
FWIW, I was testing my C8 awhile back and sun angle allowed me to view craterlet A immediately as a true ‘pit’... but sadly B, C or D was only ‘albedo’. The ‘seeing’ was only average with good transparency.
Question, any suggestions on filters, etc? I have a variable polarizer (Meade (Japan)) and Baader M&SG but no colored filters as yet in my kit. My ep’s I plan on using will be my TV Delos 10, 8, 6 & 4.5
If seeing holds to VG /Excellent. These ep’s will give me 203X, 254X, 339X & 454X respectively. I plan to let my C8 and C6 acclimate the entire evening and start viewing at about 3am when conditions should be most stable.
side note, if I can resolve the ‘Big Four’ with the C8, then I plan to try the C6 (which has excellent ‘star test’ optics)...
Keeping fingers crossed!!!
