Jupiter with Meade ETX90 and Pentax Q


I took these last month with the Q attached to my Meade ETX90 Maksutov telescope. It's my first effort at photographing Jupiter and I was quite pleased.

It's a single frame, no tracking, no stacking, taken as JPEG. The GRS is clearly visible in upper right of the planet disc.

Processed in Photoshop 7 to bring up the moons and contrast, lightly cropped and resized to my desktop.

One happy Q-user !!!

All I want is a digital back for my trusty K1000 . . .
