Jupiter and GRS Jr 20100619 0910UT

1st image from my 2nd of the early season.  I really wanted sleep, but more good seeing in the SE USA and some clear skies for a change got me out of bed.  I tried to get the GRS Jr. and may have sharpend a bit too far.

Tell me what you think I caught going on near the GRS Jr.

Late season Mars


Rescaled 2x using the 2.5x PM and the new(ish) Flea3!

Anyone know what that bright spot in the blue channel is near Arabia Terra?




Earlier shot doesn't show, must be some alignment or stacking error

Flea3 tests on FW800 in Linux




Testing my PGR Flea3 FL3-FW-03S1M-C in Ubuntu 9.04 Linux on a DL380-G5 with the PGR FirePro FWB-PCIE-01 - 1394b PCI Express Card
With this setup I was able to achieve 102fps, 16bit (12bit stuffed) and the full frame size.

I think I'm the kind of person who doesn't like strong opinions.  It doesn't matter if I agree with your opinion or not, it's not factual, it never will be 100% factual and I don't care for it.  That's probably why I hate politics.

I've always loved facts, provable facts of nature and things concerning science.  

Over time, I found that most facts are mostly reference and it was the creation of and discovery of new things that intrigued me.

"A good friend once told me you are our memory
without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Suddenly my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down" - A7x
