I just want to add that the oil sight glass on the compressor has a rubber baffle/gasket behind it which traps oil and can prevent you from getting a accurate look at your oil quality. I would recommend to tilt the compressor backward slightly so you can drain the pocket of oil out from the sight glass, and then tilt it forward to refill the sight glass. Then you'll get a better idea of your oil quality to decide if you want to do a oil change.
