Jupiter Through My Telescope
Taken last night. My rechargeable generator for my Telescope was running out, that is why it's not that centered. Seeing conditions were pretty good.


Telescope: 10" Orion XT10g

Mount: Atlas Eq-g Equatorial mount

Camera: Orion Starshoot IV

Very nice! Thanks :)

I have a "First-scope" for the kids, but we are happy if we can find and see the moon chuckle

Re: Jupiter Through My Telescope
Beautiful. Thank you!

Since you are equipped...could you please check, record and post one of those strobing red-blue-green-yellow stars? I would very much appreciate it. I would really like to know what they are and what they look like up close.

I would, but there is really nothing special about photographing stars and they usually won't twinkle as much through the telescope.

Re: Jupiter Through My Telescope
Great video Geo.
Looks like a dark spot on the edge of the upper main cloud band.
Last night's Io shadow transiting...??

Would be interesting to run the video through something like Registax - get a sharper 'still' image - might be possible to make out Io against the planet's disk.

Re: Jupiter Through My Telescope
Could you explain to me why Jupiter's storm bands/cloud stripes have changed recently and what exactly could cause the largest planet in the solar system to have such dramatic and notable climate change in such a short time?

Curious minds would love to know.

Great stuff

Jupiter has a deadly radiation field surrounding it

We should send some of our prisoners there

I was always an unusual girl.My mother told me I had a chameleon soul, no moral compass pointing due north, no fixed personality; just an inner indecisiveness that was as wide and as wavering as the ocean... And if I said I didn't plan for it to turn out this way I'd be lying...
Because I was born to be the other woman. Who belonged to no one, who belonged to everyone. Who had nothing, who wanted everything, with a fire for every experience and an obsession for freedom that terrified me to the point that I couldn't even talk about it,and pushed me to a nomadic point of madness that both dazzled and dizzied me.

Re: Jupiter Through My Telescope
what is the furthest object you can get a picture of with your setup?
Jupiter is very cool. what happened to that giant storm spot?
ever think of building your own scope?
have you ever seen anything out of the ordinary while stargazing?
does the government keep you quiet if you see something your not suppose to see in orbit?
how much time do you actually get to look at the sky due to clouds covering your area?
how much man made light is in your area?

I could go on, but im probably getting on your nerves.

I can capture Galaxies. The government hasn't said anything to me. I have never thought of building my own scope. The storm spot hadn't rotated in the visible side of the disk yet. Clouds are annoying as shit! And a lot of light pollution.

 Quoting: RedRoad


I was seeing these almost every night in central Texas,
back in late Nov.
They aren't stars. I haven't noticed or looked for them
in a few months. There were two I could see simultaneously.
I have a Celestron CPC925 XLT, but didn't scope the objects.
I could tell from looking through bino's they aren't stars,
or I never seen stars with flashing lights like that.
Next few weeks I'll be out more with the scope, it's warming up now. If I see em, I'll image one with an Atik Titan CCD
and see what I get, and post it. No stacking I am guessing due to the flashing lights but with 15 frames a sec, maybe
catch a good frame. They are bizarre, maybe another sky watcher knows what these are?
