Who ordered the white fluffy stuff?

Recommended Posts

The weather forecast for tonight was clear skies. I just got everything set up and aligned when in rolled the clouds. All I could observe was Jupiter, for a while, then the Moon through cloud.

Jupiter seemed to have three distinct bands. Maybe it was just poor seeing or have others seen this?

Sorry, I was thinking about buying a new scope earlier. Must have done it...

It was clear-ish here earlier, but cloud rolled in as it got later.

Clear here and the views of the transit of Europa plus it's shadow across Jupiters disk have been excellent :smiley:

Sorry for those who have the annoying fluffy stuff though - we have had enough of that in the West Country for a while !

Same here in Notts, got all set up to observe one of Jupiter's moons transitting for the first time.. Managed to get about a total of 2-3 minutes at the EP in between clouds. Still, seeing was ok, if a little inconsistent. Could just about make out the shadow :)

It's mostly clear here in Beds at the mo. There was a lot of thin cloud earlier. I wish I'd had my imaging technical hitches tonight instead of last night! :eek:

I'm tempted to get the grab and go outside and have a look at Jupiter.
