Thanks folks for the nice comments. It was the first time I've experienced such good seeing. It enabled me to finally put to bed doubts I've had about a few things in my imaging routine, such as collimation and focusing. When seeing is less than perfect which is most of the time here in Geelong its hard for me to know when I'm not getting something right or its seeing conditions that aren't allowing a good result. I still have more data to process so might have a couple more nice pics to put up and contribute to pvol.

Brilliant image Leigh! I completely understand your thoughts about seeing vs worry of collimation etc, so true.

A nice image, good detail and one to add your collection.

I don't want to put a dampener on your enthusiasm, however, I am reasonably certain your seeing estimate might be over assessed. The detail looks blurred in your image and all things considered if it were such high seeing your detail would be very sharp and well defined without looking sharpened. Like in this image or this.

I have been imaging the planets since 2004 and will once again spend the odd night out in the cold this year, with the vane hope of seeing another grand night of seeing. Only seen 9/10 once and that was in 2008. I have seen plenty of nights of 8/10 and even more 7/10 and countless of 6/10 and below.

Like I said it's a nice image with good detail. I hope we see drought conditions in southern Australia this year, then you will see night after night of great seeing and even the occasional night of excellent seeing like in 2008.

Thanks for your honest feed back Paul. I'm showing my inexperience there. I only started planetary imaging seriously in the last 2 to 3 years. There seems a lot of aspects to this pursuit that can only be properly realized with time and experience through repetition. I will have more of a look for guides with examples of seeing scales to brush up. For interests sake, what would you say the conditions might have been?
thanks again for taking the time to comment.

cheers

Leigh

Hi Leigh,

I think something like around 6.5/10 from what I can see in your image. See a video might help. Above average seeing can often be confused with really good seeing, especially when it is fairly ordinary most of the time.

This is a link to a portion of my Red channel in 2008. You can see Io very close to the border between the NEB and EQ Belts just slightly right of centre. At moments the detail just starts to pop. That I consider to be about 8-8.5/10

https://vimeo.com/260707438

Damian Peach has a really good Pickering Scale example in the link below.

Damian is still the master of all masters. He continues to produce great images even with the 1 metre telescope in Chile.

Thanks for the links Paul, they helped a lot. Upon revision of my video's your right, somewhere around a six or seven for the seeing seems to fit the scale better. I did try to upload the .SER to youtube but after waiting two hours it told me it can't recognize the format!
