I'm impressed by your successful viewing at 707x.
I've not done any viewing at this magnification. It must be a struggle to keep objects in the field of view!

I was surprised aswell! But don't try viewing bright stars at this magnification.....it's NOT pretty! Faint stars however looked pretty decent I must say, even got an airy disk or two for very short instances of good seeing. The detail I got from NGC 3918 intrigued me....I'd like to hear Les' take on this or anyone who's seen structure within this PNe. The central star of the Ghost of Jupiter was a perfect pinpoint at 566x aswell!

Sweet eyepieces for sure! I'm thinking of adding a few Naglars and Radians to the collection to fill in a some magnification gaps because atm I'm juggling barlows like crazy If me plan comes to fruition, I shall be barlow free until I hit the 566x mark
