    Default Finally! What a day! Quark Chromosphere + Esprit 120!



    My new diagonal ( TeleVue 2" Everbright + Satin finish) arrived earlier in the week, but the weather had been terrible (snowstorm and all).

    But today, totally unexpected the sky cleared for a couple hours and presented me with some of the best views I had so far with the quark.

    Seeing conditions were okay'ish ( 5 / 10 or so ), bit wind and some thin haze / cloud, but overall not too bad at all.

    Imaging wise, the new TV diagonal on my Esprit 120 + Quark + QHY5L-IIc + TS 0,5 reducer, this day was definitely the best so far!

    Enjoy!
