First time out of back garden since damaging shoulder in December ( thankyou @Blazar ) took this at around 01:30 so really 29th not as in title.
Seeing was way better than my back garden but still pretty poor due to low altitude. Roughly 4 minute 8000 frames, Pipped to 80 % then Autostakert best 25 %. Fairly aggressive wavelets in Registax.
Thanks for looking.
Seeing as close to opposition I felt I needed to make the effort and stay up late !
Managed this last night / this morning while Saturn was popping in and out of view between various obstructions.
Quick process of 2 minute AVI captured in Sharpcap, raw8, 3000 frames, pipped to 70%, then Autostakkert best 25 %, RGB align and wavelets in Registax 6, colour and contrast tweak in CS2.
Thanks for looking... very tired at desk in office ?

Dusted off the scope last night to check if everything is working ok, aimed for a quick bash at Jove, then some fiddling with the OAG setup using M13 as target.
Attached is Jupiter at around 1030 with Io bottom left. I was quite pleased as only had 2 runs of 3 minutes before moving onto the guiding practice which went 'badly'
See below for FLO's opinion of this camera.
Received new (from FLO) on 13 January, 2018. Used ONLY TWICE.
Reason for sale: The "cooled" version of this camera is being discontinued and FLO were offering their last one at a ridiculously low price, so I purchased that one (for easier OSC DSO imaging), making this camera surplus to requirements.
FLO price is £229 (as you can see) + £5.95 delivery, making a total of £234.95. I am offering this barely out of its box camera for £200 including delivery - that's more than 14% less than you would pay for a 7-week younger one. I have been advised that RM will not insure cameras, but it is still in its original packaging. Bank transfer only - sorry, NO paypal.
As stated, I have not used it much, but, for a "teaser" of what this camera may be capable, visit http://www.ne3filters.co.uk/g8kpd3NFcer4L/index.html - I will definitely be going back to this target with the cooled version!
PM me if interested.
I was determined to have a crack at Saturn on father's day after a nice day with the kids.
I knew it was low at about 15° but was pretty sure I would spot it over neighbours roofs ...
When I set up at 11:30 I realised that it DIDN'T
Not to be deterred I set up in the extension (about 1.5 m higher than garden)
I knew this would be far from ideal but had a bash anyway, I'm actually quite surprised with the result shooting through an open double doorway.
