Very good results! you managed pretty well to get some details on Ganymede, that is remarkable considering the seeing limitation..

Cheers

Marco

Great images!  The 2nd and 3rd images are the ones I observed in real time last night with my Lightbridge 16/Nagler T6 9mm (203x) combination.  Io was just emerging from Jupiter's disc.  I couldn't stay up late enough to see the GRS come around though!

 

In that first image, Io seems to be blocking part of its own shadow.  Maybe that's why its shadow was hard to see.

...Post #3's images are my personal pick Ferret :waytogo: ...although you know I'm always suss when I see a Saturn image by you..!?! :rofl:

Saturation & vibrancy (dynamic range) could do with a slight boost tbh. ;)

<"i hate seeing all these false colored saturns i keep seiing posted btw i processed one light and still had an f ring artefact">

 

Interesting notion you have there Joe...naturally I would expect everything taken via the pixel-array of a cmos sensor to be very "natural" - I mean, that's how our own human eyes "see" things, isn't it..?!? rofl2.gif

 

Although I do like the bit about converting what comes out of that electrical device (ie, the camera) & making it look like what you see through an ep...errr, I mean "what I see" of course...you might be seeing something completely different to what I see...& I wouldn't want that..!!! wink.gif

 

Like that "f ring artefact" you mention - I don't like the sound of that tbh...sounds a bit rude for starters..! bigshock.gif bigblush.gif

 

I do have your assurance that this Saturn is NOT the one you stick into any thread btw - I presume..?!? rofl2.gif

And nice scope too, i saw many results under excellent seeing conditions, they all coming out nice and great, i only and always choose larger images and later i found out that they are all were taken from large scope from 9.25 up to 20", and more votes i chose were gone for 14" up to 20" ones, so seeing conditions when it is there then the game or factor changes to aperture.
