Nov 28th

Here's Jupiter from the night of the 28th. There's a moon shadow near the limb. Jupiter season is winding to a close, not sure if I'll get any more good pics until next opposition!

Here is Jupiter from last Friday night (I think?) The jet stream was right overhead that night so conditions we not very good, but at least it was clear!

Clearing off the Hard Drive

The Straight Wall and surroundings on the Moon

An old Jupiter taken with a wide field planetary camera. From Oct 14th.

The same setup, taken in UV light.

Tested out a different set of software for deep sky imaging, and took this pic of the Elephant's Trunk Nebula. Misread the histogram on the new software a vastly underexposed the image! Was able to salvage the above image however.

Here's a pic of the tiny storm that is believed to be the first sign of the return of the Southern Equatorial Belt. Taken Thursday night.
