Description

This imaging session was quite frustrating to get started. I intended to quickly align the telescope with the Moon, but could not find it with the telescope at all! When I finally aligned the scope and aimed at Jupiter, seeing looked very good. However, a group of clouds blocked the view right as I was going to start capturing. When they finally moved away, the seeing had become awful. I also forgot to switch filters on one capture, causing me more frustration with the threat of more clouds looming.

Notes:

  • The Equatorial Zone is orange.
  • There is a bright spot in the South Equatorial Belt, north of Oval BA.
  • Oval BA is near the central meridian.
