Hi Roger
I've managed roughly similar to this with the 600 mirror, my ancient 300 f4, and my 3" refractor (100-4000mm f16-f64). In ~110 shots of Jupiter this month. Also a similar number of moon shots, and a handful of Mars (which was visible just as I was giving up)

Whatever the exposure NONE show any surface features.

With the 5" newtonian I couldn't get anything focused in the camera, but I think I saw some bands with the aid of pale green & blue filters.

I think I've had enough of getting cold for the moment - Astro photography will have to wait for another month.

I'll post one of the better shots of Jupiters moons, then perhaps see if Registax can do anything with my Sows ear.

I think the chances of either of us getting close to Father Teds level is rather slim!

Good morning, Mike.

I agree....

Roger.
The more I look, the more there is to see!

Morning Roger.

Yes it's been both, but I've had enough of doing the moons, I'll keep trying occationally to see if I can get some surface detail, You never know it may be I just need what astronomers call good seeing. The sky seemed cvlear enogh last night, and the stars were shap enough visibly.

I'm hoping to get to a star party locally on 1st November, perhaps I'll get some hints there!

I've not got anything better than I posted late last night so for the moment I'll probably concentrate on things a bit closer - I'm planning a macro still life of stuff at work.

Father Ted just got lucky
For what it's worth, in camera I thought the image was extremely under exposed, but I pulled it up with levels and that's when the detail stood out.
Getting there! Thanks to you guys
