1st and 3rd pics are 2 minute f25 LRGB captures, AS!2 and WJ r/g/b derotation. The center image is a set RGB 5 minute captures in reduced seeing when a few clouds drifted by (the luminance channel was ruined by clouds), with WJ video derotation/stacking.

Some nicely resolved detail Alan, the GRS wake looks quite impressive.

Very nice collection, Alan. Looks like the far right one was caught during some decent seeing.

The right one was the last of the session, and the best seeing by quite a bit. We rarely get steady air long enough for 5 minute-per-channel images around here. Thanks for looking.

That's a very nice set. Your seeing must be like mine. (scant and far between.)

Cheers
