Although this one is not all that impressive (seeing was average at best but mostly below average) I really would like to see the results with better seeing. If I get better seeing soon I'll post a follow up for comparison.

Pretty good Todd! I wonder if a very light yellow filter might help with the blue haze? Wishing you better seeing which would help more than anything. Well done!

I may be wrong but I think the combo of my old Toucam and my Scopetronix filter may be some of the issue with the color. I used to use a Baader IR/UV block which was much better but I sold it a year or two ago. I've just been using what I got. I would really like to get another Baader filter and a IS-618 color camera.
Thanks for the comments and suggestions.

For your current setup that looks pretty nice! With better conditions I bet it would do better. When I finally got Jupiter at the zenith on the last go round with the older neximage it came out much better than I ever thought it could. Not the same quality as the 618 but not bad for what it was. Hope you get some of that great seeing!

Thanks Ralph.
I imaged around 11:15 to 11:30 last night so that puts Jupiter around +37 altitude for me. I'll have to try a little later as well.

Super small bore image Todd! You can get great results with that scope, just wait for some good seeing and let Jupiter get to 45 degrees and higher...

Clear Skies,
Brian

THanks Brian. The 16 bit image looks better than the JPG posted here. Not by much but you can see the difference.

Looks like clear skies on Wednesday so I'll give it another try then. Io should be transiting at that time too. Maybe I'll be blessed with some nice seeing?
