After taking longer than I wish to admit, it is time to start posting all my images from July. I removed the BARADV from the included extension tube and attached it directly to the nosepiece of the camera, which now gives me a system that is about F/17. Conditions were excellent until the second RGB image of Jupiter.

 

Telescope: Celestron C14 EdgeHD
Camera: ZWO ASI290MM
Barlow: Astro-Physics BARADV
Filters: Chroma Red, Green, Blue, Baader 685nm, ZWO CH4

Looking good!  I haven't gotten anything that good this year.  I have a feeling a 290MM will be in my future as an upgrade to the 120MM I've been using.

Thanks everyone! I was surprised the stacks for the first image came out as good as they did since the raw video suggested an average result, but taking a sample of the best 20 frames (as determined by PIPP) from a blue recording shows that there were good frames, apparently enough for a high quality image.
