8 inch f 6 with 2.8 barlow with 5 mm Takahashi eyepiece.
seen this since August 24 1988 with this same telescope.
I understand it has been imaged in
As an aside, I have been looking for the clear visual separation of the Mountains of Mitchell since longitude 250 (ls) but Sunday morning 9/7/2003 2:34 am (7:34UT it was clearly separated, with the white island (Novus Mons) totally clear away from the main cap. I had suspected the separation the morning before (Sept 6 7:UT) but could not confirm it due to a unsettled atmosphere (cold front) which affected seeing conditions here in Houston Texas.
