Jupiter = pretty

Remember that time I took a picture of Jupiter and it looked like pretty much a yellowish blob? Well, last night I took this:

Still a little on the fuzzy side, but consider that I took this with a 5-inch reflector and a point-and-shoot camera. You can clearly see banding, and if you look closely you can see the Great Red Spot in the top left side – my scope flips the image (which is why the GRS is on the top). I used a 6mm lens. Camera was on ISO 100.

I started doing this at the end of May. If this is what I can do in less than 4 months, you can too.

Maybe someday I’ll be able to do this:

Well I can dream…
