2020 passed to fast, I got a lot of images waiting for processing bawling.gif

 

In September, I shot Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, I need more time to do post-processing.  Let's begin with Jupiter. 

 

Luckly, two moons close to Jupiter , and seeing was good.

 

I use my C11HD and Mars-M camera. This camera use IMX290 mono sensor, so I need LRGB filters and wheel for shooting.

In first image, Callisto on the left, and Ganymede on the right.

 

One hour later, Ganymede went to the back of Jupiter, gone! But great red spot is beautiful.

Wow that's pretty nice. It's all about technique and the scope. I have seen people with C11 HD and post pics and nothing close to what you have.

And that is making me to think about equipment vs. skills, so if my skills sucks then even if i have Hubble telescope i will not do much, while if i have skills then i can do a lot with 6" scope, but that is also very deceiving, because if telling the whole world that you only use 3"-8" scopes because your skills are perfect is just like asking all racing cars drivers to use small non racing cars because they are expert drivers already, it is better to match skills with capable strong equipment also, so i won't just dream about 8" or 11" scopes for planetary if i can go for something like 12" or 14" or 16" and improve my skills significantly, all the talk without mentioning seeing condition please.

Thank you so much, buddy! I got more confidence in 2021, Jupiter will rise up to 45 degree this year(only 37 degree in 2020) . And a new big telescope is ready, 16inch DOB. Hope we all would meet clear skies in summer :)

I want to see more images from 16" Dob as this year i am seriously planning to buy a large scope for planetary, and the only large scope i can afford is the dob up to 14" or 16", i am still not sure which one as i was planning for 20" back in 2019 but i stopped this plan, if i will resume it in future i don't know which scope will stay longer with 20" the 14" or 16".

I agree! skill must improved before upgrade equipments.

I start with a cheap 80mm refractor in 2011, and didn't know about how to do real astrophotography. I was use a DSLR take some photos.

Half year later, I got a 150mm MCT and start to learn about planetary imaging.

In 2012, C8 arrived and after months experience, I think I can handle it to do something better than before.

I use my C8 for planetary over 2 years, after that, I used 12" newtonian.

after that newtonian, I strat think SCT is best for me, because it's short and stable. I really like do Lunar mosaic, So I buy a C11HD, it has a very flat image cricle.

This is my best Jupiter In 2019.

<...snip...>

You have better experience than me, but i don't want to do this, i have no interested to gradually upgrade, i will just jump and neve look back, because i have no time or interest to keep learning with each new upgrade tools.

 

I started with ST80 but i didn't use it more than 2 times for planetary, i directly bought Mak 180mm which many people call it as a planet killer and those two images are from this scope, i also had 8" Newt that time but it wasn't ready, the Mak took care of my learning, because of this Mak i decided i have to upgrade directly to 12" or larger, but i kept thinking as for two years i felt like i really should not make the mistake of many here like you to go from small to a big and bigger and biggest, many steps, so from 7"/8" go 10"/11" then to 14"/16" is a big waste for me.

Those two Jupiter with the moon, so i feel like if i can learn with the Mak, then i can learn with 11" and i can learn with 20", this is putting an idea in my mind that instead to waste time with something in between i better jump to higher or larger scope and spend my whole life with that anyway.

 

I watched your images with C11, and with 12" Newt, i also asked you about the result between SCT and Newt before and you answered me on Astrobin [or maybe that is someone else], the answer was the plan for me to go with 12" Newt, but after i looked at so many results and seeing how good any reflector can do from 10" to any larger so i decided i better go with affordable one and largest i can afford, so 14" or 16", but i think maybe i will go with 16" then and pass that 14" even if i buy 20" in future.

Thanks for sharing smile.gif

 

I upgrade step by step, because my wallet force me only could buy what I can buy tongue2.gif.  Good news is, I can sell old equipments to others and add more money to buy a biger one. 

The only thing I proud is, I have so much happy memory when I try different telescopes.

You might want to check with NASA to get time on Hubble...

Hi MoonPrince! Looks like you are getting some pretty good data, so I was wondering why the new images are so supersaturated? Your best Jupiter image from 2019 has good color balance, the newer images need to have vibrancy reduced by approximately -48 and -60 respectively. That is if you want a more natural looking image...your call of course.

 

Clear Skies,

Moon Prince, check out my astrobin site I also started imaging last year (during the lock down) both Solar and Planets. By the way I just bought a C14 Edge HD online so I am looking forward to receive it on Mar. 4 and create some cool images like you. I am looking to give Venus more love, seems alot in here post more about Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars. Nothing wrong with that, I also image those planets. I like the fact that with special filters, you can see the clouds of Venus.

Venus is also the planet i want to do it, in fact it is coming third in my list as high priority planets to be photographed after Jupiter and Saturn, Mars is forth for me actually, and i am ready with cameras and filters, only need good scope for magnification, hopefully this year.

That's a very good plan! One thing I must tell you about Venus imaging or I won't get sleep. SCT is not a very good option, especially Edge HD version, it's corrector or flattener will absorb UV waveband too much. A newtonian will be better choise.

 

I was tried to do Venus imaging with a UVenus filter, but not very satisfied. I need 30ms or 50ms and very high gain.

Be honest, you are remote controlling the Hubble, right? lol.gif

 

Amazing shots!
