Default Air during siphon

I have a question regarding the ill effects of air in the tubing during a transfer to my bottling bucket. I was using a new auto-siphon that was sucking a lot of air during my transfer resulting in a small foam at the top. I did further testing and it was my fault for having too much distance (height) between the carboy and bottling bucket. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else had similiar problems and if the beer turned out OK.

Learning from my mistakes...but damn, this was my first AG (OG 1.051:FG 1.010).

Actually, just get yourself some 5/16" ID tubing so you don't suck any air.
