Re: Comet 73P Schwassmann-Wachmann sketches w/Megrez 80 II SD
- It still hasn't been clear enough to observe the comet here.
It did finally clear enough for me to make an informal evaluation of
the APOGrade, my first visual opportunity since receiving a diagonal
that comes to focus with my eyepieces.
I was able to view Jupiter and Saturn and I was amazed at the
sharpness, high contrast and complete lack of false color compared
to my past experiences with achro refractors.
