Finally some good seeing, but very heavy dew, even with 2 dew heaters strapped around the scope had to periodically use the hairdryer. Jupiter is the result of 27 mins of RGBs combined and similar for Saturn. Some fine details revealed in NEB and EQ zone. Hopefully the next good session will see the front of Jupiter. Thanks for viewing.

Great stuff.I hope we will see that seeing eventually.   It has been a very unusually wet Canberra as well, but our dams  at 55% are still below the same time last year.

Same here, but we need it too. I built a sliding roof so when I hear the rain drops I quickly slide it shut before my corrector gets a shower..cool.gif its all about timing I guess.
