Better than "pretty good"--especially for a 6" Newt.  I would have guessed at least a 10" or 12" scope.  Being able to resolve the moon into an actual disc, plus the moon's shadow is amazing to me.  Nice.

This is excellent for a Jupiter that's only 31.6" right now - the best I've seen this apparition from any sized scope.

Wow, those look like my Jupiter photos from my 12" SCT. That ADC must really work.

 

I have one but have never used it....seems like it's about time to dust it off.

adc's are very simple to use once you figure them out. they just seem confusing but there pretty groovy devises once you get the hang of them

Excellent ! You've caught the new South tropical disturbance (Happylimpet, this is what you're pointing). Last times STrD were observed (1993, 2007), the SEB began to fade so let's see if this happen this year too.

are you refering to what ipointed out or happy limpet i sidnt see a post that he pointed anything ?

 i was pointing out how the dark band under the grs is broken by a huge  whit oval just before the grs. itsstorms like this one that could be whats causing the grs to get smaller ?

My apologizes... I was refering to your #10 post. So this is a not an oval but a STrD. It has no influence on the size of the GRS, but some theory say that the GRS is the possible final state of a strong STrD (J.Rogers).
