Jupiter ALWAYS looks beautiful, but I still can't convince myself that I've seen that GRS........

Same here Vicky lol , I'm not 100% sure I saw it at about 21:30 ish, so until I am absolutely sure my poor eyes have seen it , I had better not mark it down in my obs log.

My first light test image from last night's outing. 

taken at winscar last friday

Just a quick note, and picture, to announce that our baby daughter, Hayley, arrived on Sunday 24th at 01:20am weighing in at a healthy 7lb15oz. Mother and baby both now doing well and safely home.

Same here - @astrotyke gave me the heads up it was visible around that time and I had a look using my better EP with 2 x barlow, but I couldn't be sure I'd seen it.

I even tried that 80A Blue filter, but I wasn't convinced LOL

Interesting few hours scope testing with G.

Good to see him and grateful of his help we are a bit more confused now so pulled stumps to regroup our thoughts.

Mostly star testing but the seeing was deteriorating so we had a look at Jupiter in all its glory. The red spot very easy to see. Stunning

very quick and dirty process of some pictures i took of Orion last night,

samsung nx100 with antique 50mm Pentax SMC prime at F2.8

38 x 30 sec exposure at iso 400 - no dark or bias

quick mess with levels in Gimp, but i have no idea about how to do anything else with it. Done 2 versions, but i think the darker is a bit harsh even though you can see the more nebula in it and even a hint of the flame!

Good progress last night Damian and lovely view of the GRS through the 22.

im pleased with that when you see what camera I was using lol It was just one of these, it struggles massively with over exposure, you have to turn the exposure right down or you cant get any detail. Im sure with a better camera I could do so much better :)
