  1. Both good images, don't think we can expect too much of mars this year. Always nice to see detail on Ganymede.. Well done. Martin
  2. A nice image with some good detail around the grs. Martin
  3. An astounding image.. Congratulations Martin
  4. Many thanks for all your kind comments. I acquired a few avi's of the Io transit but this last one was by far the best. The seeing got quite steady just before I had to pack up as Jupiter got lost over some trees.. Martin
  5. A very nice image. I have also found the seeing to be good lately the first hour or two after sunset. Martin
  6. That's a great image, lovely colour and detail. Martin
  7. Jupiter is getting very faint (gain on max) and my imaging window shorter and shorter. Forecast is not good for the next few days so this will probably be my last Jup image this season. Jupiter and Io with shadow 8" sct and Dbk21 osc camera. Thanks for looking Martin
  8. That's a very nice shot.. why is Ganymede so dark? Martin
  9. That's a lovely image with lots of detail. I am also imaging with the old dmk chip and its getting hard to get a good histogram without maxing out the gain. I was not expecting Ganymede to be so dark, I presume that with Jupiter at its current position relative to us we are seeing phases on the moons. In your image Ganymede looks partly illuminated, is this correct or have I had too many late nights? Martin
  10. A very detailed image and nice colour balance. Martin
  11. Very nice image. Smooth and full of detail Martin
  12. Thanks for all your comments Here is another image shortly after, this one is a bit sharper and shows more detail in the poles although I may have over sharpened a tad. Martin
  13. Thank you all. I used a Meade 8" sct and a Dbk 21 osc camera at f30. Martin
  14. More good seeing early evening. that 3 out of the last 4 nights. Pity it didn't happen when Jup was at its best. Was surprised how dark Ganymede appears, it looks like a Callisto transit? Martin
  15. Some steady seeing tonight allowed me to image Jupiters "boring side". I only have a 1 hr window to image Jupiter now before it disappears from view. Meade 8" sct and osc dbk21 3000 stacked from 5200 Martin
  16. Thank you for your comments I captured 5000 frames and stacked 3000 1.5 drizzle in as2 and reduced 80%. Transparency was poor last night, at 30fps gain was up near max to get 65% on the histogram so a lot more noise than I would like. Image was taken with a one shot colour dbk21. Martin
  17. Went out early to avoid rapidly forming fog. Seeing was quite stable but had to image at f20 to keep the gain at a reasonable level. Quite pleased with the result and the first time I had seen the small red spot in the northern hemisphere.. Thanks for looking Martin
  18. I like that a lot, a very punchy image packed with detail. Martin
  19. A very detailed smooth image, glad you had some good seeing after the conditions on your previous session. Martin
  20. Nice colour and detail at that scale Martin
  21. Very nice image taken at the same time as my attempt on that night. Martin
  22. Conditions early evening were reasonable for the grs transit but got worse after this was taken. Had to turn up gain much too high at f30 and 30fps with my old Dbk camera which meant softening the image to get rid of the noise. Martin
  23. I find the only way to be certain is to look through the scope. Looked at the stars twinkling last night and was not convinced so set up quickly and was rewarded with quite reasonable conditions although by the time your image was taken things had gone pear shaped.. Will try and post image after work. Martin
  24. Seems like everyone was out on the 9th for the double shadow transit and have seen some great images on this site. Here is my effort from that evening with my 8" sct. Watching the live view Ganymede seemed to have an oval shape so i thought my collimation was off but after processing all seems ok. Looks like Ganymede is showing a slight phase? Is this possible? Martin
