Lovely detail there Andy. I tried Jupiter last night but from 6-7:45pm which was a mistake. Too low down in the murk-Avis all unusable. I peaked up just before 8 as a huge (far as I could see) cloud bank came in. I watched stargazing live an had a quick look outside before bed and it was crystal clear-typical!

It was clear here until about 1am when patchy cloud started passing.


I did some visual from 11pm until 1am then came in and proccessed the Avi's before going to bed at 2am........up at 6-45am... :screwloose:

Good stuff andy

do you find the IR filter helps with the mono camera

 

Steve

Yes big time, it helps with atmospheric disruptions which Astronomik say effects the red end of the spectrum more.

Nicely done. Much more successful than my efforts last night. I did wonder about IR and that may go towards explaining the poor quality I got.

The IR 720Nm & 830Nm filters only work with mono cameras.

Great stuff Andy. What do you think about Barlows and DSLRs? I have a Skymax 127 with 1540mm F/L

Barlows and DSLR's really don't go together.


I used to have a 127Mak, great little scope.


Best bet is to get hold of a webcam or an older DMK camera.
