Hi, ive finally had my first proper clear night and spent most of it looking for M57 (i dont know the sky that well yet!). When i finally found it, it diddnt look like i expected. With the 25mm it was clear white dot and looked the same but a bit more blurry in the 9mm. I thought i would see a 'ring'? Could it be my collimation or is this how it normally looks?
(I have a 10" newt)

Cheers, Ben
