Completely unbelievable work with a 10" f/4.7 SkyWatcher. I am in awe! The Fremen would be proud!

I think that is the longest animation of the rotation of Jupiter that I've seen. Looks like you had good seeing for most of the session.

 

Thanks for posting.

Hello wink.gif

 

Thanks thanks LarsMalmgren, Siriusandthepup,

james7ca, petert913 as well as everyone who liked wink.gif

 

 

@Siriusandthepup

My original "Shai-hulud Tooth"
is a very very very good Skywatcher heart.png
We measured it with a friend
who makes the best French mirrors
and it's a good SW 254/1200.
As much in surface as in form.
This is my favorite weapon for imaging tongue2.gif

 

 

@James7ca

Yes yes.

It was my two most beautiful nights
for 2017 heart.png

Meh, it's just okay. Anyone can that with a 2.54 meter telescope. 

 

Hey, wait a second. Is that from a 254 mm telescope?!!!? Ganymede looks like a planet in its own right! lol.gif

 

Brilliant!

Amazing, even to someone whose country also appears to be turning into Arrakis during our hot Summer.

I always appreciate this modesty from a good imager, but I think even most mass production mirrors these days are capable of producing fine electronic images. Based on my experiences, and those expressed on this site and others, mirror and optical quality tend to be consistently decent. I'm certain a fine craftsman could produce more exquisite optics in small batches, but not just anyone could produce great images with it. Knowing when to image; how to manage the equipment (temperature, focus, filters, camera settings, tracking); and how to process the images to be both aesthetically pleasing and scientifically useful are learned skills that require time and practice to do well. Giving a random person a good 250mm mirror is not necessarily going to mean we're going to see some good planetary images that same night. Or that same year. That would be like giving me a soccer ball and telling me to score a goal in the World Cup. "So, I just kick in the direction of the goal? Wouldn't be easier to just throw it? Also, tell these distracting people on the other team to get out of my way, especially that guy standing in the goal with the gloves on. I bet you he gets to throw the ball." smile.gif
