Job 9:9

Job 9:9-10
9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.
10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.

Jupiter 10/6

Had the dob out and did some visual work with the moon.  I am also building an equatorial platform which I hope will aid in photography.  Anyway, when Jupiter was high enough to clear the trees, I photographed, and I was able to find it a couple of times with the 2X barlow.  The only problem is, I shot using 10 fps, which causes some onion skin effect.  I probably could have used a faster shutter speed, but as fast as it was moving, and the difficulty I was having keeping it in the field, I felt I was lucky to get the images I was able to get.  It seems to have been halfway decent anyway.  These are the full size images.

This was a short imaging session, around 0400Z.  You can plainly see the onion skin effect.  I'm not sure how much motion blur there is, and I dont recall the shutter speed either.

The 2 moons that you see are Ganymede on the left and Io on the right.  The GRS is almost about to rise.
