Hi Rich,



I'm not sure if these are the best out there but they are close:

These, of course, were taken with a CCD camera.

Hi Ray,



Yes, I've seen his work before. Very nice, the best CCD

images yet I've seen from an amateur telescope. But

I still prefer using my eyes and a binoviewer. I don't

completely trust what is put together form a CCD image.

I have all too often seen the minima in Saturn's A ring

look like a gap.



You like looking at "dead" photos and I like looking at

live images through the eyepiece.



Rich

Hi Rich,



I never said I didn't like looking through the eyepiece. In fact I

alway enjoy doing that! I was simply addressing your comment that

photos "show a crude caricature of what I see in the eyepiece". I've

looked through your 7 f/9 and while I've seen superb detail on

Jupiter I can't say that I've seen as much as some of the best CCD

images. But perhaps I wasn't looking at the best moments? Certainly

these CCD shots are not a "crude caricature".



BTW, the photons from Jupiter have been dead for at least 30-40 minutes,

at a minimum! :-)



And here are some more "dead photos" from the Lassen trip I just finished

(same image, different sizes only):

They do a bit to me. Maybe they are more real than what I

Hi Rich,



You sure know how to troll with the best of them, my friend! :-)
