Last couple of times I've tried it, it appears that I'm seeing the secondary mirror and support arms over everything. A couple of nights ago, I tried looking at a bright star and it looked like I was looking straight down the tube. It was very cold out so I wrote it off as it hadn't had time to adjust to the temperature. <br /><br />This morning, I tried to get a quick look at Jupiter before I left for work (admittedly through a window, just wanted to see what I could see) and the cross was there again. A large black dot on Jupiter with four spokes that tracked with the planet as it moved across the field of view.
