Re: And I thought yesterday's seeing was bad!

Mike: thank you, that was a great explanation.....I will certainly try it next time, if I can figure out the correct software settings, as my PGR Flea 3 3.2MP has small pixels and by binning I may improve image quality under certain conditions....that was very useful
