Hey, I went out to look at Jupiter with the predicted Average seeing. Bummer dude it was more like Poor to Bad seeing. 120X was fading in and out of focus. Heck even the moon was fading in and out slightly at 40X. It was a very warm bright sunny day here and then a cold night so I think the warmth from the ground must be the problem.
