Jupiter & Io, Saturn, 10 April

Recommended Posts

Finally got decent images of Jupiter with my CPC800. I was beginning to worry that I had invested in a setup that was inferior to my C8 SE.?  The CPC800 mount is far nicer to use; it's much easier to get the image on chip and keep it there. And the GPS saves  some time and effort.

CPC800, ASI120MC, ZWO ADC, captured with Sharpcap, processed in Registax6.

Note the Io moon & shadow, a circle near the middle of the southern cloud belt, and on the second image looks like the GRS just coming into view.  Also got an image of Saturn - I have always found it hard to get a decent sharp image of Saturn (lower frame rate?)

      So I originally planned to go to a good vantage point from the top of Pendle hill, watch out for witches whilst there. It is a local and well known Lancastrian landmark. However my wife is recovering from hospital treatment and so I didn't want to leave her so made do much closer to home.
      A short drive (2 minutes) took me to a place aside the motorway slip road but with a clear-ish view of the setting planets. I was only use 10x30 bins so the view was not particularly well defined but still impressive when considering distances and such. 
      Anyway it is in the bag but would like to do better if at all possible. 
      If the skies are more obliging tomorrow I may venture out with the EEVA set up and grab some data, however the forecast is not so good.
      Cheers

      Hi. Complete newbie to the hobby here. Just purchased a Meade Lightbridge 130 for my daughter as an upgrade to her Skywatcher Infinity 76. I'd like for her to see the rings of Saturn sometime with her new scope. Would getting a better lens improve her chances of a good view of the rings of Saturn? And if so, what lens would you recommend. Thank you
