Having taken some images last week when we had a good spell of seeing I had pretty much filled up my hard drive with files and I've since been clearing and sorting what I have. The attached are a few mars animations showing the planets rotation over an hour or so on the 16th and the 21st to 22nd of September as well as the best still I have so far processed. I'm still not happy with my processing but hopefully that's a skill that improves over time.
All taken on 8.5 inch newt with asi224mc. The first two at around f18 and the last and the still at f33 with a combination of barlows and bits (basically imagine if Frankenstein made an image set up)
All processed through pipp and as3. Still was taken from 35% of 15000 then registax for wavelets.
Right then, back to my digital housekeeping, only another Tb to sort!
this little active region put on quite a show and i captured till i ran out of drive space.
160 frames x 40ms delay. (220 frames in each stack) (8 seconds per video capture) (160 captures)
Animated with https://gifmaker.org/
Cropped with avidub. Logo applied with avidub . Levels adjusted with avidub.
Files converted with PIPP and registax 5.1
Three pass Processing done in ImPPG (.xml files attached)
127mm x 1200mm explore scientific first-light achromat with Meade 2x tele-negative barlow. Basler aca720-520um camera.
Baader planetarium 36mm B-BCCD filter for energy rejection

Thanks for watching!

I have been really inactive here, so apologies.
Here are a few images of the Solar Eclipse, happened on 21 June 2020. It was annular, but partial from Mumbai region (around 60% covered). Maximum phase of the eclipse was at around 11:30 a.m. IST.
This is actually onset of our 4-5 months of monsoon season, so getting decent skies was a tough part. Luckily got decent cleared patches here and there with occasional rains.
I had to use whatever I had to make a comfortable view of the eclipse, thanks to the lockdown.
I simply took a box, made a whole of the size of the eyepiece on one end, cut the opposite side and attached a paper. I had to do little bit here and there attachments for perfect angle. But was really happy with the results.
One of the best experience was when I was seeing the Sun while it was drizzling at the same time.
