Job 9:9

9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.

miracles that cannot be counted.

Jupiter 11/30/2011

Seeing was somewhat better this evening, best its been in some time.   Began the evening photographong the moon, but being it was so cold out, the telescope needed to cool off.  By the time it had cooled, the moon was getting too low in the sky to do any good work, so I waited a couple hours and waited for Jupiter to get as high in the sky as it was going to get and I went and photographed it.  Seeing was quite good by looking at these pictures:

The first one seems a lil better.  I am getting more detail in the equatorial zone.  For some reason these images have quite a bit more contrast between the zones and bands,  and I'm not certain why.  These pictures were taken with the 6 inch dobsonian sitting atop the Ponset platform, both consist of about 500 frames stacked in Registax.
