  1. With all had days like that Dave, at least we are not missing too much action.
  2. Some very nice fine detail in those proms!
  3. Very interesting to see a single frame, a very good level of detail visible there.
  4. Some nice detail there despite the low altitude of Jupiter.
  5. Fabulous capture, lovely detail on Jupiter and Ganymede!
  6. Some very nice detail visible there.
  7. Fabulous capture and a great advert for the C9.25 scope and Asi290mc camera.
  8. I definitely saw them that night as well, also the early hours of this morning as well.
  9. Fingers crossed for no sandstorm this time!
  10. I remember seeing the impact marks on the news, it would have been fascinating to have been imaging it back then.
  11. Cant wait for dark tonight, hopefully they are still putting on a show!
  12. No definitely not, even though the idea was to use for imaging DSO's which I haven't for a couple of years. I use it regularly for solar imaging and my storing OTA's so they are already cooled for use in the winter.
  13. I miss those naive imaging in some ways. Manually tracking a planet, while trying to get the focus, exposure and then hit capture
  14. My 1st Saturn image was with the rings completely closed from 2010, dont laugh!!!!
  15. Two nights in a row this week is fantastic going, not seen a hint of blue/clear sky for ages!
  16. Looks like we missing some nice displays of welcome cloud action, what a grim week so far
  17. Not a fan myself, but that's only because I like being freezing cold at night and tired the next morning On a personal level being outside looking up at the stars is a huge part of astronomy for me, probably why a stopped imaging DSO's, I just felt I was looking down more than up! Seriously though, do what you enjoy! As DP said as long you are honest about what you are presenting I don't see why anyone would have a problem. Damien peach's planetary images of late are a collaboration with the http://www.chilescope.com/ team. You will find many of his planetary images in their gallery. There is also a "remote (robotic) capture" category in the Insight astrophotographer of the year competition as well.
