Some activity this morning 7.2.19

Tried out the bigger scope this morning the 127mm . Seeing wasnt very good and focusing was hopeless with the stock focuser but thankfully have a replacement on the way.

I wouldn't. There's a lot of fine details visible in there and that's due to the aperture.

That's true but it helps when seeing goes off and I don't need to swap down to the 102 but yes aperture rules 🐸
