A sky full of stars in this 6 pane mosaic taken from Galloway Starcamp at Drumroamin Farm Campsite near Kirkinner on the Solway coast, bitterly cold with very strong winds blowing.




In this image planet Jupiter rises in the east within the zodiacal constellation Leo ahead of the back-to-front question mark asterism that is the sickle of Leo.

Cars on the A75 in the distance across the bay leave a trail of broken yellow lights along the coast road in this long exposure image while low cloud shrouds the summit of Cairnharrow.

Hi mike,

New you would get a nice image out there. I just wish my eyes could see what a CCD sees at times. I also see you are now onto a two battery trip. Glad you both got home OK. Regards

Derek

Thanks everyone for positive feedback ...I processed this in a rush and as a result processed in the wrong colour space so when posted overall came out a little too dark... note to self ....don't try to process when tired!

Derek, thanks yes safely home, car now in garage, thankfully alternator is fine ...just the belt had been slipping, the timing belt is also now being done so hopefully get the van back soon and can enjoy some remote imaging without fear of a one way trip. :smiley:

      Another attemp on Jupiter from me, a novice on astrophotography, lol. But this time image is taken using Orion Shorty Plus 2X Barlow. Image is still captured using Canon 60D, prime focus on CPC1100. Stacked and processed using Registax and Instagram as usual 🙂
      Two attemps on Jupiter which produce more or less the same image. Seeing from the image, I think this barlow degrade image quality quite significant. Please advise if any. Thanks
      Cheers

      Hello Astronomers,
      After imaging quite a detailed image (for using an 8" SCT) of Jupiter last year, I was hoping to match or exceed it this year, but I can't quite get that atmospheric condition which will allow me to capture those fine structures.
      Attached is my best Jupiter this year... I would have thought I'd get more detail since Jupiter passes overhead near zenith... I guess I just have to keep trying and hope for that super still night.
      Clear Skies,
      MG

      An image of Jupiter taken late evening, 27 June.  Not as good as some other people's efforts, but one of my best Jupiter images this year. The planet was low (around 15 deg) and the seeing was not great. CPC800, ASI224MC, ADC, captured in Sharpcap, processed in Registax6.
      Best 20% of 5000 frames IIRC.  One of the images here is a random raw frame, to show what I had to work with. Io should be visible on left in the processed image.

      An image of Jupiter taken early morning, 16 June.  Not as good as some other people's efforts, but the planet was low (around 15 deg) and the seeing was not great. CPC800, ASI224MC, ADC, captured in Sharpcap, processed in Registax6.
      Best 15% of 7000 frames IIRC.  One of the images here is a random raw frame, to show what I had to work with. Ganymede should be visible on left in the processed image. GRS coming into view on left.

      Just got 2nd hand Celestron CPC1100. Tried to take Saturn and Jupiter image with Canon 60D, prime focus. Took 1.5 minutes (Saturn) and 2 minutes (Jupiter) videos, stacked and processed with Registax and Instagram (lol). Hope to get better image later.
