My first Jupiter GIF 23 11 2013 AM - Skywatcher 150PL plus Toucam


First attempt at an animation of Jupiter. Was hindered a bit by cloud cover for 30 minutes or so which makes the animation jump in the middle. Seeing was reasonable but not fantastic but got the best focus I could get with my equipment. I think an electric focus control would really help as Jupiter wobbles all over my laptop screen when adjusting focus with my hands making it really difficult to get perfect focus.

Hopefully I'll sort the focus issues out and get some better seeing to play with as winter goes on.
