hi all,
last night I found good seeing for my little scope.

13.Dec.2012, 150/907mm Dobson, Binoansatz ~180x and ~200x

a) 19:50 MEZ I 309° II 193° V ~180x

b) 20:55 MEZ I 349° II 232° V ~200x

The GRS I measured at II 186.5°.
before
5.12. at 185.5°
and
6.12. at 186°
so all three near around 185-186°.

Bye Christian

and this is my fine 6" Dobson.
I build a sledge deep near the lightway.
A small secondary 1" mirror with a curved holder.

Christian, those are beautiful and speak to a great observing session. You captured a lot of detail and are making good use of such a moderate aperture. I use a 6" too and can appreciate what you see. Well done.

hi all,
thank´s for Your answers.
I like the 6"er more and more, because the seeing is often ok by using "small" aperture.
True that I see more details with my 10"er but I can`t not often go at his limit.

Bye Christian

Nice result with a 6" (I can't beat it with my 12").

Christian,
Very nice rendering's of Jupiter an hour apart.
On sketch B You wrote "real?". That has peaked my curiosity?

Yea, good catch, Jim. I believe there is a white oval very near there. They are difficult, IME, with a 6", so yea, I bet he glimpsed it.
