Best shot of a string of tests that I really liked.
The seeing was not one of the best. A thin layer of clouds stealing setting as well as relative humidity of the very high air required drying the broaching plate every 5 min.
I believe I have found the ideal telescope for field-out in planetary, still light and small enough that allows easy transportation.

That’s really great, as usual!  But it also encourages me that my C9.25 might one day allow me a good image of Jupiter, and perhaps I don’t need to dream of a C14 (my rule is to avoid any Astro gear you can’t lift.)

Would be very interesting to see a side-by side comparison.

Always great images from yourself, I guess Jupiter is a bit better placed over in Brazil, it's not too bad here in Bulgaria.

Nice image.

This is the type of image that has resulted in a C9.25 being placed at the top of the 'wish list'.

Excellent image, almost as good as your C14 work. As you say, a great portable scope with fantastic performance.

I upgraded from a C11 to a C14 just as Jupiter has been getting lower from the UK. My best ever shot of Jupiter is still with the C11 with better seeing.

In my opinion, C14 is the best planetary scope yet financially accessible at the moment. And for planets it does not have to be Edge.

Lovely image. Shows why the C9.25 is so popular.

Yes agreed C14 is excellent as a planetary imager. However only when the seeing is good or better. Superb seeing is more dominant than aperture.
