Jupiter - 18.4.2015 at 22.40 Nastola Observation number 37108

Visibility III / V

Mika Kontiainen, Lahden Ursa

A small tube and a large cell are clearly not the best combination for describing planets. Adequate magnification was achieved by stacking 2x and 3x Barlows on top of each other. The ISO sensitivity also had to be significantly increased. The red dot became quite clear.
