Shot this with my Celestron C5 Spotting Scope.

Best 15% of 3500 frames using a ZWO ASI462MC camera.

Autostakkert, with drizzle 1.5x and wavelets processing in Registax 6. Wavelets processing is some serious magic.

What a beautiful image and lovely processing! I don't think I've seen a C5 in the flesh. I got a CG5 mount that kind of came with an almost free C6 once (it didn't cost much more than just buying the mount) and it was a lovely telescope. I underestimated what a cracking scope it was. I'd love to have a look through a C5 one day.

Yeah, I really think the performance of this scope is underrated. I've shot some great images of Jupiter and the red spot, which I wasn't so sure you could resolve well with a 5" but it did.
