 with mars all dusty and Saturn never changing always the same unlike Jupiter and Jupiter only good for short time in the evening I think im going to take a break for a while to take care of of other things. hopefully mars will clear up soon. I could make an anime out of these 4. one needs to be brightened a bit. i dd these right after a hot day at sunrise i had the garden hose running under the scope and allover the driveway

That's sad to hear, mate, but you've certainly done your share! Your images have been particularly inspiring to me…consistently the best pics of summer planetary oppositions I've ever seen, and among the best amateur shots ever. So thank you…I look forward to your return.

 

Cheers,

BQ

Those are all wonderful images of Jupiter. The amount of detail is a sight to behold. I agree about Jupiter always having a changing landscape to present to the viewer. It's dynamic in a way that the other planets are not.

thse above images are nice but they seem to lack color and dont seem to be my best images of the season. although Jupiter is still good for imaging it is heading into the evening sky at a very fast rate . thid=s time of year we get constant real bad FHAWTS Or Florida Heat Activated Wimpy Thunderstorms, they usually die out the second the sun sets unlike the real t storms upp north in the tri state area go all night. sorry I had to figure how t throw in the a to make it funny and even if we get a clear evening the driveway will be very ht. I think to hot to cool down with water unless i set up a sprinkler head to cool the drive way as the sun sets. there fore I belive its to late in the season to really be able to properly image. As for saturn I already got my best image. kind of funny that its an amcap image and its not thousands and thousands of frames or from an mm cam rgb rgb rgb rgb 40,000 frames stacked and derotated in winjupos. But only around 4000 out of 9000 imaged with the exposure up to I think it was around 20ms or 16 and the gain turned down with auto white balance selected. tThe storms on saturn in the eq band and polar region make it a little more intriguing to image. as for mars its a dust ball so I seem to have lost my steam lol but thats not saying i wont try again . heres this evenings lightning strikes in a short time and the Saturn image . there both from am cap the july2nd it the better one

This is an excellent image, I can tell the seeing must have been excellent for this capture. It is flipped left to right though.

Here, set aside the storm in the equatorial zone and N polar region, you have also captured a small oval disturbance in the North tropical zone. I know for sure because I captured the same storm on July 5th.

What? That's like saying you wished black was white. Or Jupiter was Saturn. Some people are never happyforeheadslap.gif

what i mean is if it weren't for the 2 storms on Saturn right mow there would be no difference to what side of Saturn was visible and even if you captured 1 image every 15 min for 3 hours and made a gaf cartoon there would be nothing significant to watch while the cartoon was running aside from any ring details . i feel like once you got your best Saturn for the apparition that's it your done lol whereas with Jupiter the immediate area around the swgrs changes everyfew days and the polar region changes from day to day. ists like if you were imaging the earth from Venus if Venus were just like earth that is . so with mars thats all nice but if its going to be covered with dust then its done for the season.

That's not correct Ferret - there are very nearly always small storm spots (dark or light) that can be picked up & as in one of our recent Saturn threads, interesting ring phenomena also - back a few years ago we picked up "squiggles" in the rings for want of a better word :lol: that no-one we asked could explain, but they were "real" in that they appeared in several consecutive images over a couple of hours.

 

Spokes are another difficult challenge btw.

 

It might be too late now but you could also try resolving more detail in those Northern sub-polar storms... ;)

 

Uranus (good elevation for you also!) as well as Neptune must be even worse in your estimation :lol: but another real challenge - everything I've mentioned here is a far greater challenge than Jove for example in most respects - so if you want to keep improving they ought to be part of the bucket list for you..! grin.gif

uranus and neppy are good targets. i already figured i got some nicr details on Ganymede i should get some nice images on the 2 wee gas giants. I am not done with Jupiter its just that its cloudy every evening. I should have some funds available any day now from my inheritance. i need to get the car insured and another external drive. my laptop is full although i still dont know why my c drive says 69 gig free out of 839. once i get that external; drive i can go nuts and get a bunch of files with Saturn all w/o twisting my cam or changing roi then i could do a nice gaf cartoon. theres also a chance mars will clear
