Hi all,

 

I called the seeing average at the scope, but it looks just a bit better in processing. The GRS is visible. One a side note, the local temperature is 118F right now. 3:40pm local time.

Paul,

 

Nice work, as always. Jupiter has been horrible from Wisconsin, at least the few times I checked this year. Have not taken a single image and Saturn will probably be worse.

 

Tell me something about your local seeing. Doesn't Arizona typically have radiation effect cooling, which leaves to turbulence. How do you produce the fine images you do?

I suppose it does, but I'm not familiar with that stuff. I figure if I take enough images I'll luck into a good one once in a while. 117 right now as the sun is setting so I expect to be imaging in 110+ this evening. Crossing my fingers.

 

Thanks!!
