First Jupiter of the year - 22/06/19

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I purchased a older Meade LX10 8" SCT from a fellow member and good mate a few months back as an alternative to my 200p.
After stripping it down a few weeks back for a good clean I finally got round to trying it out last night for the first time.

Seeing was terrible to the point that even attempting a 2x barlow was too much.
Pretty happy with the result given the conditions and for a first shot of the year with different kit.
The fact that this was also my first night of actually being able to get out with a scope at all since February was even more pleasing.

Meade LX10 8" SCT, HEQ5, ZWO ASI224MC, ZWO ADC.

Thanks in advance

That is an excellent image from the UK. Good detail visible in the belts and nice to see th emoons as well.

That's amazingly good for an 8" scope with Jupiter so low - nice job!

Thanks everyone.
I am hoping to get a chance over the coming days to have another bash at it and few other targets. I must admit last years heatwave produced my best ever shots so here is hoping.
