Jupiter - 10.2.2015 at 21.20 Mäntsälä, Ohkola Observation number 33496

Visibility III / V

Teppo Laitinen, Keski-Uudenmaan Altair

After a long break, I had to wipe the dust off the Orion XT8 (200/1200) tube and remember how it can shoot. Tube attached to EQ6 tripod, eyepiece adapter and camera in place. The target was Jupiter, who bounced wildly on the laptop screen. Focusing was a lottery game, but I took a few video clips, it was a practice, not a top shot.
