I've been working on a 8"f14.5 reflector and I've noticed at high power the atmospheric "wavyness" of the images is much less than with my 8"f6.Can somneone explain this? Also I need someone to donate a cherrypicker so I can get to the eyepiece.(haaaaaaaaaaa). One other question-Im testing with ronchi because it's a sphere. Any other means to test? star testing is difficult because the images are dim. thanks.
