Another Saturn Shot

...from a couple of nights ago when seeing was decent. Still, not as sharp as I would like. I was reading up on focusing issues, and I am wondering if I am actually focusing my eyes instead of the telescope when viewing the live image through the laptop. I have read that this is in fact a common problem that can lead to slightly fuzzy image results.

I might try and construct a Hartman Mask for focusing assistance.

Tonight I am taking the big dob out for some globular hunting - can't wait!
