Jupiter & Moons - 2012Oct16
« on: October 17, 2012, 09:51:13 PM »
Every once in awhile I need frustration and venture into a session of planetary imaging.  Last night was actually not as bad as usual:

I did try pushing the C8 to 4000mm fl with a 2x PowerMate; however, the atmosphere (on the eastern slope of the Canadian Rockies) just wasn't up to the challenge, i.e.: it was barely possible to keep Jupiter in the field-of-view!

Enjoy!
