AWESOMENESS of Jupiter
Posted by stepping beyond on Friday, December 27, 2013 7:57 PM

 Let me tell the tale" seen more color and everything was popping out, focuser was taking its toll on my fingers. The last time I got results like this was Jan.  of this year, according to my log. I started using a 2 in. Z100 16mm with a urban sky filter and a 1 1/4 in. 3-6mm clickstop zoom { only using 6,5} Atmosphere wouldn't allow 4,3 and a yellow #12. Totally awesome rolling my eyeball all around the Z100, best position was letting the GAS GIANT drift down the left side of the ocular towards the front of the scope. Andromeda was amazing as ever with the Nagler and it was one cold night.

And it should be getting even better soon as Jupiter nears solar opposition.
