HI,

Not a bad evening yesterday, using the 90mm refractor venus and jupiter was on the targets.

 

Venus:

Here is a venus report performed last 28th july using a 90mm refractor.
Good images in spite of the planet elevation of 10°.
Features were appearing and the pattern observed was similar to the pattern collected during the 13th june observation.
The overall pattern of venus is not changing a lot.

Jupiter:

I tried jupiter before being at meridian.

Images were good enough with a planet elevation od 23°.

Ganymede was merging the jupiter edge, io shadow was appearing confidential (because of the microseeing present).

The jupiter structures presented with very fine detail needing a bigger aperture.

Anyway the present report for your perusal.

Good skies.

Thanks a lot gents for all your likes, Tom and Michael for their comments.

KS MIN, thanks also for your input here.

May I suggest you try venus during day, especially on the morning where seeing stays better mostly.

On that exercise the bigger shows less that the moderate, average gun. 3-4" is enough except some moments actuallt rare.

Good skies.

Stanislas-Jean

Here is a venus report performed yesterday with the 152mm cassegrain.

Images were average poor for the best moments sothat features that was captured was fuzzy and elusive.

Anyway for the illustration, the 90mm refractor would show more consistent.

Good skies.
