This morning I had another go at imaging the planets with my recently acquired ASI120MC camera, and the 127mm Celestron Mak Nexstar SLT. While the images are not that great compared with other peoples' work, I count them as a useful result as they show as much as I could see visually with the same telescope in the same session. In particular, the Jupiter pics clearly show the Great Red Spot, which I could not see visually this morning and have rarely seen with this telescope.
The seeing was not great and I have seen more on Jupiter visually on other occasions. One Jupiter image is the correct way round, the other still flipped horizontally. I focused on the moons.
lovely and sunny here in south wales, seeings okish a bit of fazing going on but I think its thermals rising up the side of the house morethan anything. not a lot happerning in WL just two small ARs , in HA theres some large proms on the out going limb . hope you all have clear too to have a look.
