Dears,

 

Next planet, from the farthest to the closest here is Uranus, after my post on Neptune.
No detail here except maybe a small protusion South of the bright North polar zone, which in this start of boreal spring, is quite bright, probably warming up from years of shadow ...

Steady skies,

Interesting post. Very faint objects.

I also saw the resolution 0.035 arcsec per pix!

How do you fit jupiter on the 290 chip?

I don't: I used a 174MM for Jupiter and Saturn...

I see.
Very interesting work and setup.
Not the average garden telescope.

I spent a little time on the 1m Chilescope, that too was with the 174mm.

Expecting a 45cm cassegrain later.

Would love to one day see the pic du midi scope in action.

I take it you are involved with the observatory there.

Well the 1m telescope is a professional one, but I could use it since 2012.

Enjoy :)

Access to a 1m telescope .... I'm trying very hard not to drool all over my keyboard!
