Testing out CCD Commander and picked this target for a quick test.

So far I really like CCD Commander - simple in concept but versatile.

Other test was I put some Baader TurboFilm over the objective due to all the pollen we have! Messes up stars and IQ some but really no option if I want to get out as the pollen is unforgiving.






With fresh morning eyes it seems this could use a little brightening...
