. I am not even sure why but i seem to be getting even worse seeing than my fellow Floridian 16 inch imager Dave or aka wavy davy. i did a couple of looks at sirius it focuses in as a pin point but there is still some bend in the mirror. i was supposed to remove it and clean out all the silicone i used under all the rocker arms for my 18 point cell but i seemed to have got turned of of imaging agai. part of the reason is i need a nice 6 or 8t external desk top drive and with this covert 19 i am not working and have to watch every penny which means no more spending on the scope. my rotating cradle seems to have worked out great i need some adjustments on my truss tube lengths but i can rotate it all round with only a slight adjustment to the secondary and mirror. the laser and chesterairy eyepiece both show good colimation. but Jupiter has been looking like i am looking at it reflecting off a pond.

I had some other images but could not down load to large
