Just received my Zen Ray ED2 spotter in the mail this morning and from all first impressions the image is just phenomenal. I was hoping to do a little more advanced testing to see if its all as it appears to be. I've read a bunch about star testing and its all so technical and i haven't gone to optics university yet. Can someone layout a simple set of instructions and I can take a few pictures, post it on here and somebody tell me if I got a good scope or not? Thanks!

Well, I took it out tonight. Wish I had phone skope for it to show you guys. I was able to see jupiter clearly on 60 power and four of its moons, I could even see brown lines across the middle of it. I think it was a little too bright for the test. So i moved it to a bright star and it made a perfect circle on 60 power out of focus and the lines were pretty much perfect concentric circles. Im pretty sure that means its good right? What does that tell me? Thanks for your responses!
