Had some nice seeing recently when the wind was light and cold from Antarctica, still possible to extract some details from Jupiter. The first outbreak is hurdling along in the NTB, with Europa. Will soon move onto Mars as Jupiter is taking longer to reach sharp focus and is at its highest near sunset here. Thanks for viewing Luke.

Nice images Luke, well done.  We haven't done with Jupiter quite yet, the best seeing here is experienced in the couple of hours just after sunset so that still gives us a couple more weeks yet.  Unfortunately for Mars when it gets high enough the seeing as gone south.  Hopefully that will change soon before those easterlies really get going.  I also caught some images on 22/9 that I will post soon.  Those outbreaks are really disturbing Jupiter.

Thanks Brett, yes..... as I am typing no doubt you would be out the seeing is very steady indeed. We have to adapt the processing techniques as these planets move further into space. Mars is here, and we will have several weeks after October to capture the details before the desert winds spoil things..smile.gif
