Wow, beautiful images! If that is 4/10, I can't wait to see 8/10 seeing. 66 degree elevation sure helps too.

Thanks for all coments! That picture sure captured through seeing 4/10. On Brazil in some parts have raining unstopable like on Rio Grande do Sul, where the Avani Soares lives. I told him now the users on CN want to see a picture taken through seeing 8/10. As soon as he captured on that seeing I'll post it for all.

Very nice!

I have received my QHY5L-II mono and can't wait to try it out, but no clear skies.

Wow the hexagon's geometry shows through beautifully. You're going to nail Encke for sure when we reach opposition!

Yes, very nice indeed - please pass on my congratulations to Avani!

I think we're all looking forward to 4/10 seeing now...

Well....firstly, reckon Avarni should be congratulated on these images. There is nothing not to like, top job with the color balance and nicely processed.

Which brings me to the estimate of the seeing, which I know I should ignore, but I just cannot.

It leaves me pondering the definition of credibility.

Regards
Trevor

Just updating the information about seeing. I was talking with Avani and he told me probably the true seeing on that picture is 6/10. At moment he captured Saturn with your QHY5L-II, estimated a seeing 4/10, but he thinks there was a brief sky window.
Avani now is member of CN and coming soon he post something here.

Wow! Awesome images. Color, banding and detail are top shelf. Seems like the seeing was a bit better than 4/10. Thanks for posting

Regards,
Steve
