Saturn 7th August


Recommended Posts

Seeing was so so. Not the worst. But certainly not as good as the 10th and 11th of July. Anyway its not easy in UK skies But still enjoyable trying.  Two moons have survived the processing i suspect.

Thats still a high quality Saturn image Neil, Like you that great night on the 10th of july seems to be our benchmark by which we are compairing our new data. I've imaged saturn 3 times since then and I still can't get anywhere near the quality of that night. I'm still not giving up yet though.😀

Agreed those great nights are almost mythical, Hard to predict too without setting up. Only to find mush for the most part

That is bonkers, yet very tempting 🤔😂

lol many years ago i had a camcorder stuck on a 16" newtonian. with chains and weights hanging off the back. before the days of planetary cameras. It couldnt be controlled though. But i did get some drifts. 

If you havent got a lot of dosh it can be done. Wind is the biggest problem. But on windless nights. its ok. About 11kgs if i remember. Its not just the weight though. its quite a long Newt at F6.3 The see saw effect on windy nights is quite bad.
