    I missed the good seeing window but took some shots anyway. I finally caught the central rille in the Alpine Valley. I wish I had shot the Alpine Valley about a 1/2 hour earlier in dim twilight when the seeing was better. I also tried my hand at double stars. I was able to get the pup next to Sirius and the companion of Rigel. I need to work on making the star images better. Time for a more advanced camera? Had fun.

    And the learning continues... I'm still amazed at the power of image processing software. I have been going over my summer captures and when I look at the Sharpcap video images all I see is shimmering images in bad seeing. Yet the processing software has the ability to make what looks like a bad capture a good image. I know this is quite obvious and "old hat" to many, but this is all fairly new to me so please forgive my continuing amazement. What will get on a good night of seeing with this beginners camera?

    The pics show three processing steps. With each processing step the image becomes better and better. Without a doubt I know that there are many other tweaks and tricks I need to learn. And the fun continues...

    Looking forward to the planet the bonanza coming this summer/fall. :cool:

    My first Venus. It was hard to focus in bad seeing. Nothing to write home about but I had to try it. Looking forward to quarter and thinner phases. Less light and I can use the "horns" for better focus!

    Hey, good set of posts! Lunar and Saturn pics are great. I also have trouble with Venus, and can get the gibbous shape but no detail on planet. keep them coming!
