Jupiter - 25.3.2015 at 22.45 Joensuu Observation number 36199

Visibility V / V

I suspected the weather tonight due to the -11C frost, which rose unexpectedly after zero temperatures. However, I punched the telescope and after less than four hours went to see what it looked like. It didn’t take long to look into the eyepiece as I was already digging the camera to cool down and after that I once again took a series of pictures that showed well the rotation of Jupiter and as a bonus of course the GRS on display. Seeing for the observation, I mark only mediocre, although Jupiter did not move on the cell at all, there was a bit of fog / moisture in the air eating the best accuracy and transparency.
