Although the seeing was very bad on the 5th of June, I have tried to take a picture of Jupiter.

Very nice! What telescope are you using? I was able to get a few frames of Jupiter a few weeks ago and I wish they would have turned out close to that.

Thank you for the comments.

My telescope is a LX200GPS 14" mjzapjr. I have used IRIS for stacking and editing the images. I have started to like this program though it is difficult to use.

I will definately have to start putting some cash on the side for a new telescope. I want to go big but still small enough for 1 person to put up with little difficulty. I live in Metairie, a suburb just outside of Greater New Orleans so I have to travel with my scope for real dark skies. In the mean time I will be happy with my ETX-105  ???

I have started with a 4". Used it for more than 25 years. Then got an 8". I've bought my 14" for my 50th birthday  ???. I will buy a 20+" when I'll be 60. I will gladly go to 100" if Meade starts do make them and sell them to a reasonable price. And I am planning to live till 120!!!

You imaged the Great Red Spot rather nicely.

Great picture but what really impresses me is your telescope buying plan.  120 huh?!  Now let me see, wasn't that the age of the venerated prophet, Moses?  Of course, according to legend, he didn't need to buy a telescope.  He just up and travelled to the stars!

Cheers,
