Thanks for the comments Sab.
I certainly don't "churn" out reports as much as I would like, but I try to grab any clear night, even if the seeing and transparency are a bit iffy and just make the best of what I can. When we do get a good night down here though it is spectacular!

I agree that I would like to get more power on objects such as 3211. Unfortunately my short EPs are a 13mm Nagler (115x) and an 8mm Stratus (187x). I have a 2x barlow but neither it or the 8mm yeild really satisfactory results. I am thinking of a short Nagler or Radian say 6 or 5mm to get 250x or 300x, but have to justify the cost which I cannot do ATM.
