Neptune Image 2017/12/06(UT)


This is the result of an imaging session at home on the 6th, problems saw the planet much lower than anticipated & the seeing was not great...tomorrow night will be our last imaging of Neptune for this apparition if we get the seeing: it is becoming almost impossible to be honest...
The 2-frame animation does "seem" to indicate a pair of spots & I have pushed the processing on the first (ut11:38) to try & evince them clearly enough to make some measurements: both are south of the Eq but the data is shaky to say the least from our normally cynical appraisal in this instance...perhaps tomorrow night might be better when (roughly) the same vista is again presented on Neptune if we are lucky! ;)
