    Sometimes I'll take several deep breathes before diving in so I don't have to exhale as much, especially on the really faint stuff.

    And I can always tell when I slip up and forget cause I have to just sit back and wait for the eyepiece to clear up.
    So, Bryan like this, right?

    A pair of sky hooks could be the answer to you problem. Clear skies.
