I don't know how these visual observer chaps do it, I thought the visibility was pretty good, but couldn't see this in the eyepiece while I was setting up. The weather forecast disappointed again, as I then had to wait 1 hr 45 mins for the clouds to clear before I started taking pictures.

P.S. I use the word "chaps" with a gender free connotation :-)
