I had my Lunt in tandem with my white light set up and noticed something strange that was only apparent in the white light view and with various EPs. I do have floaters but this was not the same - tiny motes, like little white specks, were moving through my vision. They always moved upwards though and were apparent against the dark background but hard to say if they also moved across the sun disc. Although I had to stop myself following them it didn't cause me too much distraction, almost like a satellite moving through your vision on a dark night, except for the consistent upward direction of travel, you can follow it or ignore it. I may try and take some images and capture if no one has any answers. Curious to know if it is just my eyes or something others have experienced.
At last sunshine. It was a little hazy but still managed to burn my arm! Covered my head with home made sun protector and got so enthralled with the views that I forgot my arms - hmmm silly. The views are amazing!!! I have had the Lunt zoom and am impressed then spent some time with the binoviewer - needed to play with the focusser positioning to get focus. Big difference to ease of viewing with binoviewer. A lot of time was just spent appreciating the differences in views when adjusting the pressure tuner. The level of detail left me stunned and I'll be out later to see what the evening sun brings. Imaging will come later when I've learnt how to get the most of the scope. Very easy using on the skytee 2 and I will try on tracking mount as well to avoid the need to keep adjusting. Looks like a clear night ahead too so bonus!! Very happy with my decision. Roll on sunny days. Regards, Tony
