Please tell me it wasn’t my scope!!
Hi Peter,

I was out to image the planets around half past nine and visually the seeing looked promising at 325x, as a lot of high contrast fine detail was coming through. When I plugged in the camera it became apparent that there was a very rapid component to the seeing, making the image rather jittery.
By Melbourne standards I would call it good but not very good seeing.
Hope that helps.
