Beating Seeing


Back home seeing Venus hanging in the sky, so I pulled out my 127mm Maksutov to try.  Jupiter was not in a good location, otherwise I should have used it for testing.

First one is taken with a 2x barlows, no filter:-

Second one is taken with a 2x barlows, green filter:-

So a green filter will really help to reduce the effect of bad seeing, despite the shutter speed required was much longer with a green filter.

So these are the stacked image, the first one is an average of the blur:

This one is much better:-
