 I got a coment from Daryl aboot my images from the other night and he gave me 3 thumbs up lol he said something like nice images but you still didnt blow away the c 14 like you said you would. If your going to do ral science and compare 2 different scopes then they should be side by side and same exact camera model or at least both being mono doing rgb or both beoing mc doing 1 shot imaging not 2 scopes a half world appart lol. Reasin i am saying this is im still not 100% certain i was perfectly colimated 2nd reason it was so breezy half the time mars was off the sensor or half on half off. if it were indeed perfect seeing and i knew the scope was perfectly colimated and it was dead calm then i would say this is the best i could do .  

 

 By the way my scope ended up getting pouring rain on it I got the power turned off and my laptop was already inside but  will have to clean my mirrors tomorow and i still have to focus on finding a job/. the detailing/ polishing is working ok but i need something more steady. there was an add for dock building at 25 an hour In all reality I should have spent the night working on that. but if i cant iage anymore then I may as well sell the scope. in all reality if i could go back in time i would have probably got a c 14 just because i wouldnt have to wory about climbing laders and wind. enjoy

 

first up is a plain tif i saved as jpeg

Hey! Nothing wrong with your images Joe - better than most for sure! waytogo.gif waytogo.gif waytogo.gif  I'm just stirring you about that "personal challenge" you threw out at the beginning of the Mars apparition lol.gif - truth is, I thought it would be a done deal that you'd get better results than us with Mars rarely hitting anything above 50° here (52° tops right up North 300 miles from home)...but planetary imaging rarely runs to any pre-ordained scripts...

 

But whatever, the ADC & a lot of hard work in skies that weren't very forgiving has enabled us to complete our Mars mission to our satisfaction! smile.gif I'll post later today our time with the final piece of the puzzle. wink.gif

I honestly could barely belive my wee ferret eyes when i saw that and the rest of last nights data pop out of sharp cap. I process in the field just because its quich and i get to see what kind of data im getting. I just went to alpo Japan I always thought that place was for the cream of the crop top imagers like Christopher go and Damián peach but I saw nothing even remotely close to these. not bragging just a bit surprised. im tempted to go out tonight but it just stopped raining right after sunset its clear and calm. the seeing forecast is better for tomorrow it actually shows 5/5  . I told Daryl that I would blow away his wee c 14 at the beginning but according to him i haven't lol probably im using an mc and he's doing rgb with a mono and possibly he has better seeing. mars at the time of these captures was bouncing allover the place
