We had clouds for the past two weeks. I am trying to collimate and bring into focus my new binoviewers. My plan was to use the Moon as a target for infinity. However, since I can’t do that is it possible to use a daytime target to reach infinity? Thanks, Mark

If you can focus on something a mile away, it will probably focus at infinity.  Also, when focused, you can judge how much more in-focus the scope has.

Big 10/4. Thanks.
