Damian also imaged with my TMB 10" F/9 apo. Here is his first processed image with the 10" refractor.

This is a great demonstration that you don't really need big telescopes for high resolution planetary images! Quality is what counts (seeing, optics and processing)! Excellent work from all of you!!

I'm probably not the only one here who immediately compared the images from your TMB to those of the AP-mak. I was wondering if Damian had any impressions of the relative performance of the two instruments?

I'd LOVE to see you do a time sequence of Jupiter, be just like the days of Voyager.
Nice

That's your blue? Really? *sigh*

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Now I am definitely going out tonight to take advantage of the relatively calm night we have here.

Thank you for the motivation.

Great result, as I would expect from a good refractor this size! Looks like having no central obstruction really pays out!
Do you have more details or a link about this tube?

Very seeing dependable. The second photo with 10" Mak is the best (the boring side of Jupiter), while the GRS side is better with 10" APO.
