But enough of my "blowhardin'" - I've gotta mow the back lawn so we can image in the morning at home.....after we set up and PA for "home, sweet home" that is!
On 5th Feb (local date) we shot some more images of Saturn (more than one set this time!) using the 140 seconds per channel for the first 3 sets and then switching to 105" for 3 sets of iR-R-G-B's.
Nice storm activity (white spots) as well as other detail.....here's an RGB with 4 moons showing again (like last week) as well as an iR-RGB using the iR742nM filter as per the above.....then a small animation (just under 120% of capture to maintain 200kB filesize limitations) and lastly perhaps my now "trademark" side-serving with Saturn at the tilt it is this apparition.....the North Polar maps!
Hex is clearly visible again but without making any specific declaration, is that dark spot clearly seen in the centre of the NPP Hex in all 3 images (like a "bullseye") just an artefact.....after the initial debate over my last thread I have nothing to add to this whimsical commentary - but "I'ma waiting for a really good night" and hopefully it'll be soon..!
