Challenging conditions last night! Planning ahead, I had decided to get out earlier than I did last week.....it was a wash, the clouds were even earlier than predicted, but at least there were some gaps. Between said clouds and variable seeing, well, I'm happy with the result.

You should be happy, Steve - this is excellent. Love all the blue cloud around the edges and in the south.

Gorgeous! I was out at about the same time observing Mars with a 4" f/15 Unitron refractor. The polar hood and Syrtis Major were easy to spot.

 

Wonderful!

Nice pic Steve! I think I was out around the same time - a 1 hour break in the clouds. I took the C8 out and cobbled this sketch of it:

It was a nice view, until my eyes watered up and fingers numbed up from the cold making a more detailed sketch impossible! wink.gif

Steve, it's probably the best ******* image I've ******* seen lately with a *******C *******11. ******** awesome. I'm jealous.
Really &&&&&&& jealous. I've given up on planetary oppositions here because the %%%%%%% weather is a ££££ this time of year

@@@@ it, I'll concentrate on DSO.

Well done again!

Yes, late Autumn and winter are not good times for imaging...except for the fact that it's often when the planets climb high in the sky...DOH! In the Northern Hemisphere at least. Good luck on your DSO adventures...something that I have given up on, as not compatible with planetary imaging or my local conditions.
