    Thank you David.

    I find Solar and Lunar much easier than DSO's, they drive me crazy, so much work. For Solar/Lunar it is mostly equipment rather than perseverance to my mind.

    That is an excellent framing of the old crater. Nice one.

    Nice tycho shot. How long of a cool down do you need for your Mak? Just curious.

    For the 127 I leave it outside in a storage box year round. So depending on the time of year it can already be cool but in the summer and warm days it can take an hour. I can see the difference in the shots when it is not cooled enough
