for example keeping a planet in the sensor at 3000 FL is pointless if you don't have good collimation, accurate tracking. Also make sure your finderscope is aligned to the telescope each and every time.
Mark, my scope is pier mounted in my observatory, on a CGX with perfect polar alignment. CC8 collimation is perfect,
No camera involved with the CC8, or possible 10. Weather conditions equals Seeing as far as I am concerned, I am not out there on dodgy night's.
