LtE in CMO #268

From David M MOORE

. . . . . . . . Subject: Saturn - December 31, 2002


All: Finally had a chance to do a little imaging last night. Here is an image of Saturn. It was taken with the Astrovid 2000 and 500 plus images stacked with Registax. Happy New Years!!

. . . . . . . .Subject: Jupiter - January 11, 2003


All: With Damian Peach's success with his webcam, I dusted my own 3Com off and put it to use the past two evenings. I had stopped using it early last year as I was frustrated by poor seeing and never bothered to use it again. At any rate, Thursday evening had an early fog set in from rains in the morning. I captured some wonderful images, but failed to save them correctly and lost them all. Hoping Friday night would be a repeat, I was out again. There were many cirrus clouds and seeing was not as good as the prior evening. Still I managed to capture the best Saturn I have ever done and really wish I had Thursday nights images back! The Jupiter images are indicative of the variable seeing I was experiencing.
