This night the seeing was nice and steady, I managed to use three cameras with my Meade LX200R 10". These are FD28 with a 2x barlow.

Point Grey Firefly (IMX035 bayer color) reduced to 80%

Thank you all!

I prefer the IDS UEye result. Generally I get slightly better results with it on Jupiter compared to ICX618 (I have the Basler). But they are close.

Here is a softer processing of the IDS capture, LRGB versus RGB.

I'd like to know where you are located so I can move in next door and have the same seeing.

That is excellent detail with a 10" scope!

Well I'm in Paris suburbs in France, be sure you like crowded urban areas and traffic jams before moving here ;)
The light polution is bad, but the seeing is often stable. works fine for planetary observing and imaging.
