Here the Spanish cold callers don't even care if you can't speak their language, they will still go on and on and expect an answer despite telling them. It's quite funny, and they will still call you...

Jupiter 5/1/14, getting there.

This is probably my best Jupiter yet although it seems like I say that every time.
Still trying to nut out the processing but this is a reasonable start.

The first pic is just using the sharpened...

Thank you, It can be tricky though with the processing, this one is my second method which is a touch sharper than the first. Still I was waiting for a 100% Moon to finish...

Full Moon mosaic!

This is a shot from the other night when the moon was at it's peak.
I used 25 panels to get this and it was taken in my 150PL with the asi120mm and red filter.

The collimator isn't out though, I had checked this already. The focuser appears to be the issue or at least I think it's that. My star test looks alright so I'm going to live with it a bit longer...

Thanks everyone for the encouraging comments.



I'm starting to get a good system going now and it doesn't take too long to do, plus it's the only way to get a full disc with the asi120.

I got a Seben collimator for Christmas and it's fine, I tend to use it as a compliment to my Chesire.

That said once I spin the laser 180 in the focuser it moves off centre which leads me to...

94.5% Moon

22 panes to this mosaic stitched in ICE and just a bit of post processing in PS. It was a bit breezy though and at one point a large persistent contrail wafted over the Moon but I don't think it did...

Thanks Jorge, the smoothness is probably due to the noise reduction as there was a lot of noise. Don't think I made the best use of the histogram and should aim for more next time.

Jupiter 27/12/14

This is my first real attempt at an RGB Jupiter with my ASI120mm, it's not too bad but it was very noisy so I have cleaned it up a bit. This is just straight with my 150mm scope and no barlow as the...
