William Optics FTL 98 mounted on LX200R 14

First light through the Williams Optics FLT98 APO was nothing less than awesome. The cloud bands on Jupiter showed highly detailed structure. M45 The Pleiades through the 14inch show only 4-5 stars with a 50mm 60 degree FOV eyepiece. The FLT with a 24mm 68 deg. FOV eyepiece showed all the stars of M45 as well as a larger area surrounding it.
