I just came in from a wonderful evening observing Mars. I always find it fascinating how imaging and visual observing enhance each other. Having recently imaged Mars I knew what to look for and with patience I was delighted with what I could see including the beautiful white north polar cap, a patch of clouds setting on the eastern limb, and a thin veil of clouds on the western limb.
Telescope: Meade 10” LX200 SCT @ f/30, Orion Atlas EQ-G
Camera: Imaging Source DBK21, Meade IR (Lum) Filter
Exposures: 5min @ 30fps (1,000 frames out of 9,000)
Software: IC Capture, Registax 6, Photoshop
The seeing wasn’t the best and it quickly deteriorated, but it was still neat seeing this face of Mars. These are the first-light images from my new to me LX200.
Not a great night to image but did it anyway. You can't be choosy in Ohio. 15 x 600s captures the best 80% were processed with flats applied. 12" Meade LX200gps, QHY8osc, FR .65, Deep Sky Stacker, PS7

This picture shows my ETX-90 fitted with my Canon 550Da for basic imaging. (The dew shield is not shown.) To minimize the overhung load of the camera and to avoid conflicts with the base I mounted my DSLR on the visual port of ETX-90. To get it as close as possible and to reduce the weight I removed the finder, which is pretty useless anyway, particularly once the Autostar is lined up. I’ve used a similar configuration in the past to take full-disk images of the moon and I recently obtained a full-disk image of the sun to test this specific setup.

A recent discussion on Cloudy Nights about using an ETX-90 for basic imaging has gotten me interested in giving it a try. I’ve done quite a bit of imaging with an ETX-60, but only a little bit of lunar imaging with a stock ETX-90 and that was quite a while ago.
One of many taken around 2:30 am Minnesota time. The moon was in full eclipse by the Earth at this time. It was very eerie and cool to see visually.

Just a quick set of images of the moon taken before I started an evening of camera-assisted observing.
I am still fairly new but I have been to the observatory a couple of times and plan on spending a lot more time getting involved.
Anyways...tonight! The weather seems to be not cooperating so I am not sure if I am going to stay up late to see the moon this evening but I was curious if anyone in particular had plans on setting anything up at the observatory in case the weather clears. Thoughts?

My new to me deforked 10" LX200 riding on my Altas. The scope is fitted with the Meade dew shield (very nice) and a Crayford SCT focuser from ScopeStuff (also very nice). The ADM saddle plate is fitted with an ETX-60 guidescope. The black box on top is my homemade dew shield for my Telrad. After tweaking the collimation and getting it cooled down with a Lymax Cat Cooler the optics look great! I'm hoping that this will become my primary high resolution imaging scope. The Plan at the moment is to refork my 10" LX6 for visual use.
