  1. these are really good!
  2. Awesome!
  3. The above is the full resolution image from the asi290. The detail is still blurry if you zoom in too much because the collimatio is still not perfect and there are processing artifact. On a desktop computer screen it looks okish. But you are right, its small.
  4. Another example of PI processing. This time I did: ColorCalibration ATrousWaveletTransform (lots of iterations here, to get best noise reduction) UnSharpMask ACDNR (best noise reduction here)
  5. The other thing I forgot to mention is that I think positive progress is being made with collimation thanks to Bob's Knobs. Sorry for the free ad here but "Hurrah for BKs!"
  6. Go for it. Don't forget to play with the noise reduction. It makes a huge difference and can help you avoid using another piece of software that may either reduce data quantity and quality or worse, introduce unwanted artifacts.
  7. V3 seems to simplify things. I personally think that AS!2 and AS!3 are close but one thing is noise reduction seem to be better in V3, though I'm not the one to tell ;-) Below are new processing efforts with AS!3 and PI(!), which I decided to purchase as the effort to go via RS was too much for me and in no way is this a criticism of that software (just me being impatient!). This took me <2 minutes to clear out of the raw using Atrouswavelettransform, which is similar to wavelets processing in RS, SCNR and Unsharpmask.
  8. Jupiter on the 23rd April, 2017. Io, Europe on the left and Callisto on the right of the planet. This as I continue to improve the collimation of the C11 Edge HD. Bob's Knobs are now in place, which help a lot! This is the result of a quick collimation after the installation of the knobs.
  9. Another try last night after some more adjusting of the collimation. Not quite there but I think it's getting better?
  10. Hi This is with a C11Edge.
  11. This is the best I managed from my location. Jupiter is low for me and the seeing has not been quite helpful. Must check collimation one of the days...
  12. Awesome! I've got to get my shots from yesterday processed - thanks for the reminder :-)
  13. Awesome! Lost for words...
  14. Excellent shot! I do agree the colour seem a bit biased towards the red. One things I do for fixing colour is use registax RGB balance when in wavelet mode.
