It got dark at 1230MN so stepped out for some observing. It still wasn’t dark enough to see galaxies well but open clusters and globulars were fine.
After a while, I thought I would try out my new Baader Hyperion 31mm Modular Aspheric in 2′ mode – I thought it was amazing. Very flat, very wide views that made looking at the globular clusters in Ophiuchus a pleasure.
I will try it as my default general purpose eyepiece for a while.
