The weather forecast I had heard earlier in the day mentioned a "moderate breeze". Moderate was not the adjective that sprung to my mind after having been out in it for an hour. I'm blaming the breeze on the three frames I rejected before stacking. It certainly dissuaded me from putting a bigger telescope on the mount.
