Jupiter, Ganymede, Callisto 12/6/12 by zAmb0ni, on Flickr
Seeing wasn't that good at the start, but got better. Problem was, when the seeing started to get really good, some low level clouds took over and forced me to pack up...darn micro-climate. Early on in the session I was also trying to image over the house and the heater kicking in didn't really help out either .

BTW....I keep forgetting to post one of my sets from last month. I just had looked at the images and they were probably some of the best images that I had captured with the webcam...not sure why I haven't posted them though.

With the image scale I image at with the SPC900NC, I really only have a narrow range of gain I can use before the noise and artifacts get too much. And with Saturn, I had to drop the framerate to get a longer exposure.
I had been looking at the Chameleon for a dual planetary/lunar scope, but the framerate of that was kinda turning me off.
If the sensitivity of the ASI120MC is as good as it looks, I can use it as a guidecam for some deep space stuff also. It would replace the webcam and my DSI .

I'm not expecting a miracle with the new camera, I just want to get rid of a lot of the noise that I get with the webcam. If the added frames I can capture with a higher framerate gives me better images, then that is just gravy!
