JULY 26TH - GREAT DISC DETAIL IN PST


Recommended Posts

Out this evening from about 6.30 to 7.30.  Some of the best seeing I've had for a good while.  What can be seen on my rather inadequate sketch doesn't do justice to what it actually looked like. 

The surface detail and texture was fabulous and constant across the disc, with a blood red disk and very black background.  Alas my sketch just shows an indication of the main features. A great memory for me though. 🙂

I had a brief but rewarding session today between 5.45 and 6pm and can confirm, as Paul has said, the seeing was excellent.  It's sometime since surface detail was so well defined with the bonus of some free double stacking effect from passing cloud.  Spoilt for choice with the many filaments on show and a small hedgerow cluster of proms revealed fine structure that looked like the headline of a Japanese newspaper.  Definitely one of those days when a large aperture and a high magnification was worthwhile!     😎

Glad you could benefit from the seeing Peter 🙂.
