G'day all,

 

It's a 'tween clouds couple of days, and the seeing prediction was excellent (5/5) for tonight's full moon. The jet stream was a tame 20 m/s, but I was skeptical with the 1-arcsecond limit prediction. Through the eyepiece at 300× seemed just ok, but the stack was excellent. I got good results with just a basic Photoshop Smart Sharpen to equalize the sharpness across the channels:

If he were still with us, Ferret would be proud…

 

Cheers,

Ha! He's always threatening to sell the scope. Let's hope he's still mulling it over.

 

No complaints from the Tropic of Capricorn this year!

I had just assumed if I waited a few hours the wavelet version would be added!  Very nice results BQ!

LOL! I have the processing workflow fairly standardized now, so I don't get as much variation in output as I used to. I could do a deconvolution followed by a derotation to eek out just a little more detail, but I was happy with the smooth result…
