Lots of humidity tonight.  The air was boiling away.  Still managed to get a decent shot of the GRS as it transitted.  Registax is extremely helpful in bringing out detail.  Hope you all enjoy.  Have a great holiday!

nice shot of jupiter vomit  ;)

what kind of telescope were you using?
Light travels faster than sound, that's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

I use an 8" LX-90LNT.  Shot with the LPI camera (no barlow); some post-processing in registax.

Keep watching the skies.

I'm going to try "sans" barlow next time (without).

My images always seem to come out too red.

I only wish my schedule would lighten up for me to get out there. Then when it does, it's always too cloudy. :(

That's odd.  When I tried my barlow on Jupiter I thought the image came out way too orange.  Not to mention the fact it was/is way harder to focus.  Any ideas people?
