I would like to share with you the Hubble class Jupiter image captured by renowned planetary observer Christopher Go with affordable QHYCCD camera.
“Special Thanks to Cyclops Optics for their help on technical and software settings. Excellent after sales service and very knowledgeable! The QHY5-III-290M camera is so low noise and more sensitive that I could reduce my capture time. I can finish my session in 15 minutes with superior images vs 45 minutes before! ”

It's our great honour to host Christopher Go, the legendary planetary imager at Cyclops Optics office. We had some discussion on planetary imaging and the latest generation imaging cameras before he gave a lecture for Hong Kong Astronomical Society. Chris is very kind, friendly and willing to share his insights on planetary imaging which he has excelled for decades. He is now one of the selected ground support for NASA Juno mission to Jupiter.
