My camera resolution is 18 megapixels and I thought I could bring out more detail, but maybe my original focus was off. Ever time I tweaked the focus knob on the scope the image jittered so much I had to wait a couple of seconds for the scope to settle down and didn't get quite the focus i was looking for.
Maybe that is why my current concentration is more on theoretical physics than experimental physics.
Until next time,
