The QHY5IIIColor is a very fast frame rate CMOS camera with a large 5.86 micron pixel size which is useful for plane...

Re: Saturn

One of the reasons for the enhanced detail, especially the rings around Saturn, was the use of "deconvolution " in the Astra Image program. I now use it for all my planetary images to bring out that final detail.

Re: Posting in the Gallery

Hi Robin

I have posted the image of Jupiter above and I wish to delete the two posts that refers to Jupiter since it does not belong in "Posting in the Gallery". Unfortunately it does not allow me to delete these 2 posts myself. I have reposted it where it belongs. Thanks!

Cheers, Rick
