Jupiter and some Sunspots from a few weeks back
managed to do some long overdue photography a few weeks back.
If anyone looks South at Sundown - 8pm Jupiter is looking spectacular at the moment and is up for most of the night
I was looking at him last night through my 10x50 bins and if you hold them very still or prop them on something you can easily see 4 moons around the main disc as tiny little pinpricks of light.
This is Jupiters'boring' side - no red spot as its on the other side - managed to get some colour in Ganymede though ( thats the red moon to the upper right)

Also the sun is waking up this year and the number of sunspots has been off the chart !
Finally got the camera working as I like it and have finally managed some decent sunpot images and surface granultion
