Hi all, here is an image of Neptune from last night showing the bright storm complex rising at lower right. I've also included a version with the WinJupos overlay added for orientation reference and to show the equator.

 

Taken with a 406mm f/4 newtonian, 610nm longpass baader filter, 5x tv powermate and GS3-U3-32S4M-C camera

 

cheers, Bird

Cool image

 

With your camera bird do you notice any benefit with the global shutter camera?

I tried the asi290mm last year in June on Mars, and I had a problem with vertical lines in the result so after a couple of nights testing I went back to the imx252. The tests I did showed very similar sensitivity between the two so I'm happy enough with my current camera - the imx265 is basically a slower and cheaper version of the imx252.

 

cheers, Bird
