Spectacular image.

I was out a couple of nights ago an posted my Jupiter observations on the Solar System forum, and your picture does an excellent job of capturing the amount of detail that I as seeing visually..

But in a C14!

Wonderful image for a 6" scope. Applause.

Thanks Cheaper, Asbytec and Eddgie. I probably leaned a little heavier on that image than I should have, but I think the trade-off on detail/sharpness versus natural/smooth in this particular case was worth it, as leaving it soft this time would have left hidden a lot of cloud features that IMO are interesting, and tiny resolution-wise, that I was happily surprised to see from the old 6".

And to Eddgie, I sometimes imagine what I could do with a C14 (and even sometimes dream of bigger, but of course the atmosphere and thermal issues becomes big factors, but it's fun to dream.)

Regards, to all, Jason W. Higley

That's amazing! I had this scope in the 60's....my first "real" scope.
