  2. Finally got a go at Jupiter with my mono cam that I purchased last August ! Have a 3 month old daughter added to the flock too so just haven't had the time to get back on here. Anyway, I was happy with the finer details this has started to show and alas its the less interesting side of Jupiter ..always seems to me that the spot is only about at the most unsociable hours when its clear ! Thanks for looking. Taken with C11 HD x2 powermate Black Fly Mono RGB JUPITER SG.tif
  3. Thanks guys your too kind :-) Yes the seeing definitely declined which was apparent in the processing which I kept the same for each frame but the output varied. I was very surprised at the movement , which looked insignificant.
  4. Hmm that didn't work as planned...so any pointers on uploading straight to SG (without an outside link..or even avoiding You Tube ) would be much appreciated for any better ones I get in the future. Thank you Simon
  5. Here is my first and rather crude attempt at a rotating Jupiter in red channel only for 39 mins. Always wanted to try it and so treated this as a test thing to have something to learn with so here it is. I had my first go with my Black Fly on Jupiter Friday night and was surprised at the size so had to put my 2.7 barlow away. Anyway things didn't go to plan for the still colour captures really could have been focus or seeing or me being a prat, either way I was a bit rusty on this and an old PC I've stripped for plant captures was not being nice to me either. Anyway, after negotiating s
  6. They are looking really good Jake , particularly the IR version :-) id be happy with those . Judging by the GRS I'm assuming you were outside about 4.30 ish as was I for once! I had to do numerous deals on the girls and our 1 month baby girls shifts to get out undusturbed ! Very rusty but got going after a while. No idea on the outcome .... Will take a while to grab the time to see what mess I captured , so I'll hope they come out half as good as yours . Nice to see Jake thank you. Simon
  7. Still nicely done Simon , despite the limitations. Always nice to see. Thanks :-)
  8. Still nicely done and really good to see. Top job :-)
  9. Krys, you should come back over for one of the star parties the island has. Visitors are always welcome here..especially astronomy ones !
  10. Incredible work ! thank you for sharing that's simply amazing !
  11. Top job. Love the colours you've got out.
  12. Fantastic ! Where do I start with so much high quality imaging ! The animation of the two Moons is incredible. The details on Ganymede and that you have cleanly split the row is simply amazing ..and then you have animation with it ! Wowzers :-) As always your Uranus images really lead the way with such accuracy. Thank you for showing the differences in capture and the raw outputs. It's good to see Mars is still there and considering its tiny and off the menu really to get anything , it's even more outstanding to capture in its most difficult state to such quality. (Bowing lots over the inter
  13. Nicely done with shadow and all. Lots more chances to come to get some better weather
  14. Thanks Kokatha, I was hoping you would see it. There are very few people who attempt this and to me it seems you are one of the world leaders and I am very keen to get closer to achieving something credible. I was aware of the orientation peculiarities but the fact that it keeps coming out with a distinct shaded sideways curve from all of the many processes I experimented with, which lead me to think it could be nothing else but some kind of data or why the curve but that seems unfounded. I will PM you as I completely value your opinion and would really appreciate any pointers you have for
  15. Terrific images Angie , and from an 8" too. Can't wait to see what you get with good seeing and when Jupiter size increases . Good job :-)
  16. Nicely done Jake :-) I had intended to have a go too this morning but my 4 week old has the snuffles and is keeping us awake ....and then my 2 year old decided she would get up at 5 so that was the end of that ! Your pics have a nice natural feel and are inspiring me. I haven't imaged Jupiter since I got my new planet cam last June so your pics are revving me up ! :-) Alas getting a clear sky and the children all sleeping is a tad tricky at the moment ! :-)
  17. Thank you Yes I did. It was a C11 HD , with 2xpowermate 2" , Ir 685 filter and Blackfly sony 692 chip binned as the light was too dim not to and was at 10-13% in capture 4.5fps. This showed a clear crisp disc on screen albeit small but big enough..just. The Ir filter also took the light away but I think its essential to cut through the atmos. I wanted to use my 2.7 barlow and on screen the size was fairly decent at 7,560mm but the loss of light really killed the fps down to sub 1 per sec and so grabbing frames in the seeing and just from wobble was too much of a stretch and in addition the d
