another member tried

Heard from Claudio. He too tried to split Sirius. Yesterday...

He made an aluminium occulting bar for his 6mm and 8mm eyepieces.

He focused his C8 with a Bahtinov mask.

Used his shiny new Tele Vue PowerMate 2.5x.

Fired up FireCapture.

Activated the planetary mask plugin.

Capture a few thousand frames.

No luck.

The horrible seeing didn't help.
