The clouds and high winds are my current forecast.

Haven't had it out yet and I doubt the second picture would even focus, but I thought I would take a photo of it as a bino. If I have just lost an inch of aperture I'm down to a 35mm aperture. lol.gif

Those eyepieces aren’t Pentax, the XW Buddha wouldn’t even look at that scope ;)
