Do you have a heater on the secondary mirror? My friend's scope only gets dew on that mirror, primary hasn't had issues as of yet.

No I do not, and I've never had issues on the secondary. Only the primary dewed so far, so I've put a heater band around that one (though tbh, I don't know how effective that is.)

I wonder if you can get them for the secondary or not?

Reflectors seem to require a lot of maintenance which is why I never got one (plus no way to get a properly oriented view.)  I stick to refractors and CATs (SCT and MAK).

That's absolutely beautiful, Phunnie. I love the colors, and that blue-green center makes me think of tropical waters, or of Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone.
