Seeing was variable with significant jet stream, but I have a few decent images from last night. Others are still stacking, but here's the first.

 

1100 EdgeHD + ASI678MC + SVBONY UV/IR cut filter + ZWO ADC + CGEM. Single 3 minute video, captured in SharpCap Pro, stacked in Autostakkert, processed in Autostakkert & Astra Image.

 

Capture resolution on the left, 1.5X on the right.

Thanks for looking. More to come.

"Decent?" You do realize people would kill for an image like that, right? lol.gif

 

No image where details on the surface of Ganymede can be seen can be called just decent. That is an amazing view!! waytogo.gif

Agreed, nice detail on Ganymede!

Nice detail on Ganymede Borodog.  Per the comment above, it's not that difficult to capture details on the Galilean Moons (Europa is tricky and Callisto is dark).   Heck, if I can do it anyone can!!  Still processing data from last night with the 12" scope but at least so far I have round moon. If you're not having success: 1) Go back through the FAQ. 2) Stop thinking that planetary imaging is anything like DSO Imaging. and 3) Practice!!

Great photos! I was photographing mars last night despite the jet stream and got an image of Jupiter and Ganymede, Jupiter definitely showed the poor seeing more than Mars did! Really great image! :)

Perhaps you'd concede that not everyone has a 12" scope and that array of cameras!

Thanks all. I shot 25 frames, but these are the best 5.

And here's all the frames (well, all but one; I threw one out completely) unprocessed beyond Autostakkert sharpening, just to give an idea of the variability of the seeing.

That's true, but the array of scopes on your signature is pretty extensive compared to mine.  Cameras are getting pretty inexpensive compared to those scopes and should not be a limiting factor in getting good images.

Not the best frames, but I wanted the GRS as front and centered as possible.

 

Eyes-apart stereogram:

And if you prefer, a cross-eyed stereogram:

Looking at these I don't think I should have clicked "Stretch luminescence to maximum dynamic range" in WinJUPOS. It makes the images look blown out even though they aren't.

Oh cool. I got nearly the same shot the night before (perhaps 3 rotations) with the stuff in my signature. Not even in the same class, but it's great to have a reference to help pick out stuff smirk.gif and something to work towards...lol.gif. Thank you!
