First light with 8” SCT

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Managed to catch some short clips between some clouds. Still a bit of hazy high clouds though. 

Jupiter was better positioned for me but I couldn’t resist a quick look at Saturn despite it sitting on a rooftop and suffering from interference. 

5,000 frames with an Altair GpCam 290C. Usual software. 

Threw the 2.5x powermate in but conditions really weren’t suitable however, the closer image of Jupiter turned out to be acceptable enough.
