At the same astro party where I shot the Pleiades and partially Iris + the surroundings, I started gathering data for M33.
For this image I used only a SkyWatcher 150PDS through which I recorded the photons on an ASI1600MMC.
Curiously enough, I shot ~3.5h of luminance there under Bortle 2 skies, but a simple STF in PixInisght revealed less details than in 4h of luminance (through a LP filter) shot from home under Bortle 6-7 skies.
Nevertheless, I put all the luminance together, I shot another 40mins of each RGB + 1h45min of Ha and made an image. A bit of colour only I also borrowed from an image I made 2 years ago, but in a small ratio.

Sharing with you my best images of Jupiter and Saturn for this year.
I haven't had the luck of a High Pressure system with no wind speed yet, but on the 17th it was as close as I had for planetary this Jupiter/Saturn season.
Not my best images of the gas giants ever but ok IMO.
I'm happy to see that the GRS seems to be repairing itself, last time I imaged Jupiter, the border around the GRS looked like it was breaking up so perhaps it'll be around long enough for my kids to see in the eyepiece.
Captured at f33. Images consist of the best 15% frames from 13x60sec @ 60fps for Jupiter and 13x120s @ 30fps for Saturn, derotated in WinJupos.
Hey all, I just started imaging the planets again after a long break. I have just purchased some new equipment a ZWO ASI224MC and skywatcher ADC (replacement for SPC900). I have read a lot about image quality depending on the height of the planets. The image shows top row images I took in Dec 2012 SPC900 ( looks like the world did not end 🙂 ) and bottom row July 2019 224MC. Would the difference I am seeing in quality be down to just position or am I not setting the new camera correctly? Thanks for any more image examples or help.
