Gassendi 9 May


Recommended Posts


Yes each time it's a little easier to get the image and the exposure. Afocal needs a bit of patience - as you know!

Changing to the Lanth's with their large eye lens and good eye relief made it far easier to get a good image.

I notice that I stated the magnification of the posted image with Barlow was 222x - that's with the 9mm, with the 7mm it's 285x.

The outfit still gives a good image at way over the theoretical limit for the scope.

Good afocalling!
