I finally found a night when I felt like doing some astronomy, and it was clear...or reasonably so anyway. Since the quarter moon was well-placed, I decided to get a few video clips. As it turned out, the seeing wasn't good enough to get any ultra close-ups, but the images below could be worse.
I would like to get some clips of Saturn, but either it's been cloudy, foggy, or raining....or I have been too lazy to get up before dawn.......or a combination of the two.
* Celestron NexStar 4se (1300mm focal length), alt-az mount, un-barlowed ToUcam Pro II. Each image processed quickly in Registax 4.....from approx 1100 frames, and tweaked in Paint Shop Pro Photo IV.
