  1. This dude is in your area of the world
  2. Snap of shadow of Io (10 o'clock) on face of Jupiter and Ganymede (5 o'clock) 28" f4.2 Webster dobsonian, 3.7 TV Ethos EP and iPhone 8 Live video here
  3. You can adjust the brightness up or down using the touchscreen and sliding up or down on the iPhone. You can also magnify onscreen image to help get the image focus better. NightCap app allows long exposures which might work with Neowise if its bright enough.
  4. and Mars same night.
  5. iPhone 8 snap of Saturn from the other night unprocessed. 28" f4.2 Webster Dobsonian with ServoCat ArgoNavis tracking, 3.7mm TeleVue Ethos eyepiece in my suburban backyard south of Perth in Western Australia.
  6. I have used the Filmic Pro app with success on planets and Nightcap app for stars and fainter objects
  7. Yes it's quite pretty in the eyepiece. Antares B looks greenish to my eye but comes out blue in the video. It's a really good indicator of the seeing if I can see them both and the gap.
  8. iPhone video of Antares A and B in my 28"
  9. FWIW If it helps admittedly the currency conversion and shipping to Oz was horrendous but not for one second over the years have I regretted buying them. They're lifetime keepers so amortization
  10. I'm not at all into the processing side of things but if anyone out there wants to please feel free to have your way with any of my videos. I think I probably would need some filters that I don't have to discern any cloud features.
  11. FWIW Here's a Venus live video through my 28" with an iPhone. I've never been able to see anything other than a white disc anytime I've ever looked at Venus.
  12. I bought a couple of wood eyepiece cases from "Wood Wonders" in the US a few years ago I love them but now I need another one. If someone is looking for gift suggestions for you....
  13. Here's a live video on my iPhone 8 through 10mm TV Ethos and Paracorr II on my 28" f4.2 Webster Dobsonian. Using NightCap app and fiddling with the settings.
