The scope arrived today, so did a quick collimation and put it on the CG5. Didnt install the guider, so I thought I'd try some planetary stuff. The first image I took was of the moon which came out pretty badly, being it was a thin crescent, and I attempted a closeup.
After the moon, I hit up Jupiter, which was not too good either, but was better than the moon. The first image is here....
Kinda blurred, but I did notice I could expand the planet to about double the image size that I could do with the 6 inch. The detail is similar to what I got with the 6". I took the image out of focus, and saw that the secondary reflection was not centered in the blur, so I did a quick touchup of the primary collimation. Also, I installed the UV/IR filter on the webcam.
Then I shot this image:
