Saturn Madness - Double Transit Tonight
Posted 20 March 2009 - 05:15 PM
Dione & Enceladus are transiting tonight. CSC is predicting 4/5 seeing for my site. These are small but in good seeing I am hoping to catch my first Saturn moon transit. Good luck

while letting the scope cool i had a beer and shucked some oysters for my wife. after she went to bed m51 was above the lp to my east and in prime shooting territory. i set the a560 up on the adapter and ep. when i tried to adjust the settings i couldnt get into the chdk mod menu. somehow i managed to delete chdk. "no biggie, ill just reinstall" i thought. nope. my card reader wouldnt work.
the night wasnt a total waste though. i did get some good visuals of m51, m63, and saturn before hauling in the gear. i wish i would have setup for saturn as the seeing was great.
