Beautifully Clear and Unturbulent Night Monday

 I was able to get the 0x sight lined up with the 9x50mm finder.  One the mirror had cooled to equilibrium and collimated, I could see at least four cloud bands on Jupiter at 160x.  On Saturn, I could see, in brief moments of calm air, Cassini's Division on the ansae of Saturn's rings, and a pale yellow cloud band on the planet.  A very satisfying night.
