There's a lot to be said for a bullet proof polar scope!

Agreed Greg - its a fussy thing. When its working, its great and when its is so frustrating.

It drove me mad trying to work out what was responsible for the inconsistent results. Little did I realise that by examining the images in Maxim, I was actually changing the images and therefore clouding the issue.

I'm keen to get it just right and then to leave it alone.
