I got a break in the clouds today. The jet stream was up, and the seeing prediction was 3/5, but the seeing limit was predicted to be 0.6 arcsec. So I set up.
My mount is cactused. It karked it a few nights ago…the RA motor seizes up when I point the GoTo at anything. And the DEC motor groans like a flat kazoo. Seems like a bad motor control board; both motors can't go past a slew rate of 7. Fortunately, my clutches and the mount's sidereal rate are still functional.
The seeing was just meh afterall.
Rather than the usual derotation heroics, I'm just posting my 3-stack filmstrip at 50%. This makes for 3 cross-eye stereo pairs. There's the first pair of pairs with a light cross-eye, bringing the adjacent Jupiters together. And then there's the strong cross-eye, bringing the two on the opposite sides together for a much more pronounced effect.

The NTrZ is still a mess…
