Quantum 6: First attempt at photographing Jupiter
      #6150275 - 10/21/13 05:29 PM Attachment (169 downloads)

Here is my first try at photographing Jupiter with the Quantum 6. I feel I can do better, I just need to keep practicing. Love the scope though!

Thanks Erik! Here's one more try. I won't post anymore attempts until I come up with something significantly better.

Thanks! I use a Basler Aca640-100gc (see attached). The pics of Jupiter could've been better (trying to shoot from a deck...slight vibrations).

Thanks! By the way, there was a Quantum 6 on ebay tonight that was mistakenly listed as a Quantum 4. I could tell by the pictures and the serial number that was listed. Somebody got a steal and picked it up for $930. It did need some attention (cleaning, plus some scratches to the paint on the dew shield), but it was still a great price. It almost went for $515, but the bidding jumped during the last 30 seconds. It came with both wooden cases and the dew shield.

Hope you don't mind I moved it more to a natural color balance. The Quantum is terrific scope. Looked AT one once not yet through one . I'm sure its great as the image attests.

Pete,

No problem at all, thanks! Any help or advice is always appreciated. It is quite a nice scope. I never thought I would actually own one, but when the opportunity arose, I couldn't pass it up. I really like the fact that the scope disconnects from the fork. It makes it so much easier to set up. The base and scope weigh around 40-45 pounds (i believe), very solid. I have a lot to learn in the image processing department, but I'm having fun along the way.

A Questar 7 is out of my price range, but the Quantum 6 gets me in the ballpark.

My viewing location. I couldn't ask for anything better, except for those clouds to get out of the way!
