Hello everyone,

 

Saturn images from September 10. I miss did my processing here and the final results are noisier than I wanted. Too lazy to redo it though. LOL!!

so beautiful, how did it look thru the eyepiece? I only image with my phone...but wow the view thru the eyepiece is so stunning. I look forward to the day I capture an image like that😊...well done. All y'all that take time to get such superb images of our cosmic neighbors...thank you...such devotion and attention to details is admirable.

Oddly enough, I almost never look through the eyepiece. My system is optimized for imaging so I just never need to look through the eyepiece..

 

I do appreciate the kind words though. smile.gif

I have a University Optics 18mm orthoscopic eyepiece I paid $25(US) for about 30 years ago. It's the only one on my astronomy cart. I use it to get the planet in the correct spot in the FOV before attaching the camera. And here I thought I was the only one. grin.gif

I have a nice collection of eyepieces I grabbed when I first started in this hobby thinking I'd be doing 100% observation and never get into imaging. It turned out I was right about the 100%, but the wrong way around.

 

On the other hand, I do have a dob for DSO viewing at my holiday house, but lockdown has basically prevented me getting out there and using it for the last 6 months. I suspect when I finally get out there, I'll just use it for imaging planets as well.

what? I am flabbergasted! I plop down on the observing chair with an Oliva serie G cigar and a couple fingers of Plantation original dark rum and see what I can see. I must admit though it is fun to capture video with the phone then go thru the post processing to see what I got.
