Hi, first of all thanks to this forum for recommending me the ZWO ADC.
Now my pictures are way better!

I just got one of these.   What was your process for dialing in the right prism positions?   Do you notice image shift as you move the prisms?   Just curious.  Great images!

Hi thank you so much!

First I balanced the ADC by rotating it in order to center the bubble.

The 2 ADC knobs must be set to the starting point (aligned with the white point).

Then i pointed Saturn and looked at the colors.
I moved the 2 knobs equally by the same amount but in the opposite direction (one to right and one to left) until the image didn’t have any distortion.

Excellent progress, Daniele!  These are looking really good.  The ADC really is a great little tool - I'm glad you got one.

Thanks!   Looking forward to getting out when there are no clouds to try out the new toy.  I have the QHY version of the 290 sensor on order as well.

Hi Daniele,

congratulations for the very nice pictures!

By the way, have you got any recent image of Jupiter at the moment when the red spot has just appeared on the left limb?

I would like to compare the band structure with a video I took on August 20 at 22:40 from Italy (using a 127 mm Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope).

Thanks a lot!

Cheers, Daniele
