    Default A question for you huge aperture ppl:



    Have any of you with 20" or large apertures in dark skies ever observed PGC 69457 and, more particularly, Einstein's Cross in the center of it? If so, I would love to hear an account of it. I've read that it's possible, under eyedeal () conditions, to view it with an 18". It's only 1.6 arc-seconds in angular diameter and at 15th magnitude. It would take some incredible equipment and skies to see it at all, much less split images of the quasar.
