SOLIGOR MT-750 6” Newtonian reflector telescope on BRESSER EXOS 2 Go-To mount @ f/25 afocal through Plossl 25 mm eyepiece and FUJIFILM FINEPIX JX600 on a BAADER PLANETARIUM MICROSTAGE II adapter. The images were obtained through stacking using RegiStax 6 software.
These are two of my first images of Jupiter after buying my new telescope mount and digital compact camera. Note the GRS visible in the monochrome image. This was the first time I was able to capture it in such detail.
