First off, make sure you have proper cool down. Those tubes retain heat well. Let it cool outside for an hour at least. Check your collimation, mirrors shouldn't be too dirty, but dew can muck up a secondary. Remember that the G-8N uses the "barlow" corrector in the secondary mirror, sometimes they get foggy too.

Good Luck!!
