Last night I wasn't expecting to image, but very glad I did. I normally gauge my seeing by how many test runs I need to determine best focus. Normally 4 or 5 might be needed under good conditions. 2 for exceptional conditions. I needed 1. I took the time to do mono and color. I did some level changes. Hopefully, it gives a pleasant outcome.

 

Celestron 9.25sct

3X teleconverter

Color (ASI224MC)

Mono (Mars-M)

I like the new processing in the first two images, Amrit. The saturation is a little on the high side, but the greater - and more even - brightness is more pleasing to my eye. Images like that in post #3 always seemed murky looking to me, as if you cranked up (or is it down?) the gamma a bit too much. A matter of taste, of course, but I find the images in #1 and #2 to be much more appealing.

Ditto Ray's comments Amrit - nice images waytogo.gif ...but "perfect" seeing is taking it a bit far mate! ;)

There were moments for over a minute, not a hint of blurriness. .

Stunning image. How high in the sky is Jupiter at your location?
