Subject: Jupiter Image from 10/31/10 with a Meade ETX 125PE Sent: Tuesday, November 9, 2010 19:58:20 From: Robert Amdahl (email@example.com) Here's another Jupiter image that I hope that you will find acceptable. It is from 10/31/10 taken with a Meade ETX 125PE, a Celestron NexImage and a 2X Barlow. I did the initial stacking and processing of the one minute avi file with Registax. You might like that I used Registax on a mac with a virtual Windows XP system using VMWare. I did some further processing with Photoshop (back on the mac) to bring out more detail and enlarged the image by 50%. The shadow is of the moon Io with the moon itself at the left edge of the planet. I was quite pleased with this image because I was able to get a moon/shadow transit with the moon and the GRS. I hope you find this image acceptable for you site and thanks again for keeping us sane with your great website. Thanks, Bob Amdahl
Subject: Re: LPI Camera Software Sent: Monday, June 8, 2009 14:41:18 From: Lyle Johnsen (firstname.lastname@example.org) I returned the LPI Camera and got a Celestron NexImage Solar System Imager. This camera runs on 32-bit Vista after you download the Vista driver from Celestron's web site. I got it running and now I am waiting for some good weather. This camera is supposed to be equivilant to a 5mm eyepiece, which should be about 80X on my ETX-80. Lyle
Subject: Lunar Images with ETX105 and NexImage Sent: Wednesday, September 14, 2005 18:26:56 From: email@example.com (firstname.lastname@example.org) I have just purchased an ETX105EC and Celestron NexImage CCD camera. I have posted some lunar images to my website (see bottom of webpage). http://www.currentloops.com/astro/ [no longer valid] I used a 2X Barlow for the closer images, otherwise the CCD is virtually a 5mm eyepiece as is. Visibility was poor due to high thermal activity and a jet stream over Brisbane Australia at midnight 12th September 2005. The moon was almost directly overhead. Plenty of city glare also. Can't wait to take it out to a darker sky. Cheers, Rob
