Absolutely beautiful!! Congrats. Definitely want to hear details on 1st light observations when you get time.
1st object was the moon but it was still quite bright out. I used a Pentax XW 3.5mm. Seeing was not great but I could see quite a bit of detail. I synced the scope on the moon and then hit go to for Saturn which I couldn't see yet in the bright light of day. Found Saturn with a 30mm Tak LE. I don't have a finder yet because Yuri needs to make a longer stem to reach over the wheel. Saturn was quite steady and large and bright with the 3.5mm Pentax. Had to see Jupiter next.
Jupiter was getting low but still looked large and with nice color and detail. GRS not visible.
I went back and forth between Saturn and Jupiter for a while as it got darker. My wife came out to see Saturn. There were also some Blue Jays on our feeder so we watched them.
I don't remember the order of everything but I viewed M13, M11, M17, M22 but it was behind a tree, M15, M24 too low to look great, M57 (pretty sure I saw the central star but didn't spend a lot of time on any object--I have experience seeing this star in my 180 and a 16.5" dob so the 200 should be quite "easy."), double cluster, Albireo and several double stars (amazing beautiful color saturation) and other open clusters like M25 and M29. Owl Cluster, M27 (simple CS compared to the 180 which usually requires more averted vision).
Oh and M31 was beautiful in the Leitz 30mm even with the moon out. One of my faves last night.
I didn't have the 180 out. I thought about bringing it out for a comparison but changed my mind. There will be time for that later. On the other hand, I know my 180 very well because I use it almost every night. It was obvious I saw more stars with the 200, planets and the moon were brighter and larger. More detail I am sure to come with good seeing. The 200 is what I was expecting and perhaps more. I knew the difference would be slight but I think that slight increase in brightness and resolution will be valuable and is obvious, not subtle. M13 at high power I saw more stars even with the moon out.
And then I used Vega and Altair for star testing which I enjoy doing. I was surprised to see the star look about the same inside and outside of focus. I did not use a green filter yet. Just a quick test but I think the 200 has a better star test than my 180 which I have tested often. Yuri and his son Nick made at least 2 of the 200s out of 10 so far to 98.6 strehl according to his posts on Facebook. I don't know what mine is but it would be interesting to know. I think I have a good one regardless. Yes they are all good, I know. But everyone wants a higher Strehl if they can get it.
Tonight I might view the moon more but also the planets before the seeing degrades and which usually happens after sunset for me.
Oh yea. Neptune and Uranus also last night. Beautiful blues. Seeing not great at this time. Uranus was the last object before I came in to post the 1st pictures. A great night with a great scope.
