Moon Jupiter occultation

Jupiter is a beautiful planet, especially when you see it close to other objects in the sky. I made photos, videos and video captures of the occultation event. My whole work is below:

Jupiter with iPhone


This is the most ridiculous thing ever:

a photograph of Jupiter taken with an iPhone 4S which was aimed into the eyepiece of my Lightbridge 12" Newt with the manual Dob mount.

Mars Making a Come Back

Hi all, 6.15am and up with the lark and so had a look at Mars at culmination.
SW 100ED, transparency poor and seeing average, North London.

Roll on March ...

Jupiter midnight on 14/10/11

Jupiter with better viewing conditions than normal so more cloud bands visible. Post processing of 1000 frames in Registax. My best picture of Jupiter yet with my relatively small 6 inch telescope so I'm quite proud of this.

Something wrong with uploads to this forum so piccy also here:!/lfboyd/status/125126438197280768/photo/1

I am a new astronomer and I have been taking every opportunity to check out new things that I can find in the sky. The last few nights I have been battling partly cloudy skies that seem to take over just in time for me to get my telescope ready for use. Tonight, I set up and found a break in the sky that lasted only 20 minutes or so but I was able to ...
