  3. Beautiful Sun today. Interesting proms in the border although no details in the disk. Lunt 80 + asi1600 Close ups with my QHY178 and powermate 2.5. Quite windy today, I didn´t get the resolution I expected. Anyway I think the pictures are interested enough to be posted.

    What's wrong with the seeing?

    Just for fun, last year I imaged Júpiter once with my 4.7" refractor. This is what I got Obviously, aperture rules. But you can do interesting things with a small telescopel

    What's wrong with the seeing?

    Yes. Ten degreees is quite a difference. It´s too bad that we haven´t been lucky so far with the seeing. Yesterday I tried on jupiter. But the jet stream was really strong. I only managed to get this. Regards

    What's wrong with the seeing?

    Sorry. I think I didn’t explain myself well. I used the 4” to check the seeing, but I took the picture with my 9.25 hd.
  7. With all the main planets well placed for imaging, it's amazing that there's not a single night with good seeing. I've been trying for almost a month, watching the planets with my Little 4" and waiting for a good night to set up my SC. The seeing didn't look too bad yesterday so I decided to try, just to see saturn "dancing" in the screen of my computer. Focusing was a real adventure. Anyway, my first saturn this year.

    Sun today with a "expected guest"

    It's just a matter of patience. This time I took the picture only 10 km from home. My first iss took me almost 100 km away

    Lunt 50 or Lunt 60??? HELP

    I’ve owned a lunt35 bf400, lunt60 bf600 and now a lunt 80 bf1800. I tried double stack in my lunt60 but I didn’t like It (I’m 80% visual). Aperture rules. I’ve never tried the lunt 50 but I can say there is a noticiable difference between the 35 and the 60 and again between the 60 and 80 you asked for images. I am on holidays and my laptop is at home. I can only post a few pictures that I keep in my iPad. I hope they can help you to make a decission Lunt 60 bf600 tilted tune + qhy5 LII lunt 80 bf1800 pressure tuned

    Vixen ED103S - Say Hello

    This is an amazing telescope for visual. I owned a 115 ed that I sold when acquired my tsa120. I never did a comparison side by side between them but, from memory, I think It could be at least as good as the tsa for planetary watching and definately better for solar. It gave me the best solar images in any of the telescope I’ve had.
  15. I think that the tak fc100 + the SW wifi gt is a combination made in heaven. I’ve been using It for five months and It works really well. The mount handles the telescope easily even with a 2” diagonal and eyepieces as heavy as ethos 21. I have the regular tripod. I think that a sturdier tripod would be better specially when you are using high magnification or when it’s windy.
