Greeeeetings.

 

Quite remarkable I've finished these at all, only 3 weeks late might be a record. Assisted by **** weather since and going on hols with my laptop. Conditions were pretty good for most of these but quite heavy processing still needed with lots of deconvolution and many runs combined.

 

Mostly RGB with the QHY5III200M but 2 colour cameras for the first night (224 and 462 for CH4). All with the backup 12" f5 skywatcher.

 

Includes my best ever UV image.

I'm very glad you did an ultraviolet image. We hardly ever see Jupiter in UV. Excellent work.

You also caught the southern temperate belt being "crooked".

That's really taking advantage of some rather nice seeing, old chap. You brought out a lot of fine detail.

You might have had to work hard, but the end results are terrific.

Excellent! 

 

Are you using only deconvolution - no wavelet sharpening?

 

Regards

Many thanks everyone!

 

Mark- no, wavelets and deconvolution. All in astrosurface.
