I haven't dragged out the telescope in awhile, what with the winter and all. But today, as both warmer temperatures and clear skies came together, I thought I would give it a shot and try to get a look at Jupiter and its moons. And it worked brilliantly. Unfortunately my shots don't do the view true justice (focus and exposure are extra tough on the telescope). But I did a get a decent shot or two. Jupiter - Ides of March 2015 by SRHawk64, on Flickr Celestron NexStar 6SE - 1500mm f/10 +2X Barlow, 1/30, ISO 800. BTW, if you look close, in addition to the bands, you can make out the "Great Red Spot", which is actually shrinking and isn't quite so "Great" anymore, but noticeable nonetheless. I had a longer exposure one that showed the four larger moons of Jupiter, but it hasn't shown up on Flickr yet for some reason.
