JUPITER 24JAN13 - ASI120MM first light
      #5641106 - 01/24/13 05:25 PM

It is a long time I posted here last time, winter is terrible...

Today my new camera arrived and it is fantastic. I did first few AVIs in strong freezing wind (20-50kph), lost Jupiter from chip few times. But I love the camera and its big chip.

Hi Michal - a promising "first light!"

Your mono widefield image really does show the versatility of this camera but the (larger) resolutions also enable me to drop the gain whilst still obtaining very respectable framerates on dimmer targets like Saturn...

Looking forward to your rgb's when the conditions present themselves!

A promising first light image there Michal, the wind chill must be very unpleasant, by comparison it was 40 C where I live yesterday.

Regards
Trevor

Thank you for comments, I hope to catch some at least average seeing finally!

I reprocessed the image today:

Beautiful Michal, that combo of your scope with this
camera will soon produce even better images.
I hope the wind calms down for you!!

I'm late to the party, as always. Excellent photo. My wallet will be a little lighter after these become available again.
