Great job James :waytogo: :waytogo: - good to see that you've whipped that C11 into shape and getting the huge leap in imagery outcomes over your old 5" mak (not that they weren't great for the aperture!!! :))

I'm sure the camera upgrade will produce another quantum leap for you once you get a handle on it, and with the elevation you Northerners are enjoying with Jove atm I reckon you're going to be one very chuffed planetary imager by the time this apparition is over..!

Very nice animation also! :cool: - if I may be so bold as to suggest something, if you slowed the speed of the animation down a tad so each frame was displayed fractionally longer, and did a slight crop of the finished animation's black background you wouldn't see that pulsating "shrink-expand-shrink" of said which can distract the eye...and the slight slowdown would enable the viewer to appreciate the details a little better. :)

But that is just a small suggestion - you've produced a very smooth, evenly-illuminated sequence of rotating disks which many of us would be proud of..! :waytogo: :waytogo:

Very well done James! Glad to see your C11 in action, it will give a huge boost in resolution. One question: How did you produce your animation? I am curious what software folks are using for this process. Thanks :grin:

Clear Skies,
Brian :waytogo:
