Jeff Cook brought over his O-III filter and 55mm 2" Plossl
eyepiece. That gave us about 30X. The North America Nebula
was as plain as day! The most striking feature is the "Gulf
of Mexico", which is like a deep black void with the
nebulosity very sharply defined. It was quite an amazing
sight, and at this power I like it better than the Veil.
