Attempt at Jupiter


Recommended Posts

The clouds cleared just long enough for me to grab this shot of jupiter. 

Nothing fancy as i've not got a webcam yet.

This is taken with my SLR attached to my telescope via 3off 2x teleconverters.

No stacking. Just adjusted in photoshop to bring out some detail.

Thanks Guy's


I assume I'll get better pics with a webcam like a philips toucam but enjoying trying other methods. 

The teleconverter / slr method seems quite good but you loose too much definition and light through the 3 off converters.

The other problem was that there was so much bolted to the end of the scope it had limited movement due to it hitting the mount.
