views in the telescopes

It occurred to me little MCT might show Jupiter and Saturn before the big 'scope. Fired up SkyTools and configured an eyepiece view for the Meade ETX-90 with the Celestron 26mm.

Then I set it to the Celestron 8 with the baader 36mm.

I was a little surpirsed but it makes sense. The wide view baader ocular will show more sky.

In addition, of course, the C8 has better light grasp. So more stars.
