Early this am I imaged Saturn again, with highly variable seeing going

from awful to good. I think the Encke Division/Keeler Gap is in

evidence, as well as in general a bit more detail in the rings than two

nights ago. I sharpened the posted image a bit more to maintain its

visibility in the jpeg conversion, but it is relatively apparent in the

routine processing. Regards, Mark

Mark:

Beautiful image though overprocessed a bit, but it sure shows the

Encke.

Regards and congratulations, looks like you are happy with the scope

.Aren.t you?

Eric.

Eric, thanks and I am obviously very happy with it. I recently

changed from a Pier Tech II (at its design load limit) to a Bisque

42" permanent pier, and that cured the lack of stability I was

experiencing when turning the Mak's focser. Mark

Eric, I tried to respond to your private email, but it bounced back

undeliverable. That has happend a couple of times, and I wanted you

to know I am not ignoring you. My apologies to the group for wasting

bandwidth. Mark
