Thanks. Seeing wasn't good, loads of air turbulence :( I used Neximage 5 which I'm still trying to figure out. As my first attempt, I'm very happy with it :)

It was good from my back garden! From 2am Jupiter was high enough above the fence for me to get a good view, I saw 3 of the moons too. After playing around with different eye pieces I going that the 6mm wide angle worked best showing the lines round he planet, I was viewing it in a pretty bad light polluted sky but I could still make out some detail. I was going to hand around for mars but it was just too cold!

Glad you got him in the bag. I would agree with previous comments that the 6mm at 200x is best if conditions permit. Anything more needs crystal conditions but sure you know more about it than I will!

I caught Jupiter at 5 on Saturday morning; was a little overcast but enough to improve planetary seeing. Was a lovely rewarding experience.......again! I never tire of looking at it and the moons just add lots of excitement. Happy viewing :)
