My photo from last night (Saturday May 6, 2006).
Hey, everyone, here’s one of mine from last night. Actually, it’s a composite of two separate images. In most of the shots I took (1/2 second to 8 seconds, the camera has limited manual controls) Jupiter is hopelessly overexposed and smeared. But when I accidentally used the flash, the short exposure did the trick, although none of the moons showed up. So I did a little magic in Paint Shop Pro and combined the two. Not scientifically accurate, but it does give the visual impression. Shot was through my homemade 8-inch f/8 Newt, undriven; Nikon Coolpix 800 mated to a Televue 14mm Radian eyepiece. Great time last night, everyone! Doug
