Jupiter turned out pretty small with the ED80, so this time around I decided to the bigger scope – the Celestron 6″ Newtonian.

With its 150mm main mirror, it clearly shows more detail and zooms a bit closer due to its native 750mm focal length.

In this image, I got some “onion ring” artifacts, which are rings around the planet caused by having too low a gain after applying wavelet processing. By exposing the planet at 75% histogram, these artifacts should disappear and that is what I plan on trying out next.
