Tried the 130mm again last night as the Jet Stream was still at 30m/s or so according to forecasts...and the image on my screen!

 

This is a combo of my best 3 captures - 20% of 30,000 frames in each of the 3 stacks, so about 18,000 total frames in this image.

 

21o, 130mm Refractor, 2x PM, IR/Cut Filter, ADC, 290MC:

150%

 

The Jet Stream is forecast to subside to 10-15 m/s tonight, so I'll likely be out again.

Here's a frame from a Jupiter capture last night to give you an indication of the seeing at times:

Believe it or not, this was in focus!
