Thanks Jeff. See below.

The refractor tends to display a softer or subtle image with the stars showing a glow or halo of the airy disc whereas the reflector more of a sharp, tinny look with tac sharp or pin point stars , just my initial observations between the two types of images and scopes , mirrors vs glass lens
Both do a great job on this object
Well done !!

Thanks Martin.
A layer of moisture on the lens probably didn't help. It also affected the guide scope.

I have dew heaters installed now on both main and guide scope.

And will give it another go tonight.
