Best Jupiter to date

Happy with this shot of Jupiter. Would dearly love a night of great seeing. If you have any to spare please send it my way.

12 inch Dob, ASI 120MC camera.

Very nice image for a dob, are you using an EQ platform for tracking.

Thanks Jeff.
I use a crossbow equatorial platform. Works well for planets and for deep sky.
I am very happy with mine.

Richard.

Jupiter is not easy to image well. I have had more success with Mars at opposition.

That's an impressive result for an EQ platform but I suppose for planetary videos of only a minute or two duration the tracking doesn't have to be of arc second accuracy. Think i feel a project coming on for one of my dobs.

Thanks Wes & Tony.
For me the images captured by Damian Peach are truly amazing.

Hi Richard,

The nights lately have been pretty cool and this image is even more so.

Really wonderful.

Best Regards

I had another go at processing the image and I have also added a shot I took with the ASNSW 16-inch scope at Crago Observatory.

That is superb, I wish I could have done that sort of imaging all those years ago, well done indeed.
