Second Jupiter of this season

And still not any higher then 16° in the sky. That’s like, behind the trees and the neighbour’s houses. The seeing for this session was worse then the night before. It does not show on the results.

Jupiter on June 2nd, 2.30 MEST / Maksutov 180mm F15, ASI290MM Baader RGB

The return of the big Mak

I purchased a brand new SkyWatcher Maksutov back in 2010, as a first scope after many many years of inactivity. Eventually I sold it to replace it with the C11.

However, the sharp and crisp planetary and Moon images, the great visual experience of this scope, the stability of the collimation, kept on haunting my scope addiction.

So it was a great day yesterday when I could re-purchase the same scope after 9 years.
