This is my first post for the season, the summer easterly winds here make for terrible seeing skies.  The easterlies are finally being replaced by gentle westerlies bringing the decent seeing with them.  Caught a some of shots of Jupiter and Saturn a couple of weeks ago, finally got around to processing them.  The seeing for Jupiter was slightly better than Saturn's.  There appears to be very little activity on Saturn.  Both images shot with a ASI290MM and derotated in Winjupos.  Cheers Brett

Your Saturn image is super sharp and well detailed.  I really like it.  Jupiter came out nice, too.

What's interesting is the lack of storms on Saturn so far.

  There appears to be very little activity on Saturn.

I think you're selling your Saturn image a tad short there Brett - there's nothing that really stands out but a few bright spots can be discerned & I'm pretty certain they aren't artefacts...we have a few in ours' also. ;)

Thanks to everyone for your comments.

 

Good to hear from you Vega700, my observatory is at the top of the scarp near Dardanup and the easterly winds absolutely howl up here, I am glad they are finally disappearing for a while.

 

Darryl, you are right (again), on close inspection of Saturn there is activity to be seen.

 

Cheers Brett

Hi Stuart, good to hear from you.  Those horrible easterly winds we had when you were here have finally abated and the good seeing has returned.  Got a few good shots last night, probably post them in a day or two.  Cheers Brett
