Hi guys, after weeks of rainy days, I finally got one clear night in Troy, NY.
Transparency and seeing are both good, and I tried to combine the satellites with Saturn for the first time!

 

Celestron C8HD + ZWO ADC + TV 2.5x + qhy462C

 

Jupiter

Saturn

When I was collimating the axis, I saw one black spot on top of the image several times. It will rotate with the camera while I didn't notice any huge dust on my CMOS. Does anyone have some suggestions about it? I will appreciate any kind of feedback!

Thanks!

Thank you!

Yes, I think the great red spot of Jupiter is too well known, so 'GRS' is always used for it.

I like this color too, so I actually learned it from others' posts. Just increase the brightness and the saturation to make it more dreamy.

Nice images, always like capturing the moons of Saturn :).

 

To get rid of the dust spot (looks to me like it's on the barlow or the IR cut filter) I use pure electronics grade IPA and a cotton bud. Make sure you try to blow off the dust first with an air blower or camel's hair brush, but if that doesn't work the IPA is the next step. 

 

You can buy the air blower and brush from a camera shop, get a kit that used for cleaning lenses (like this).
