Nice views of Jupiter from the Pacific North West - Moons are 2 & 2 and equitorial bands are nice thru my 8 inch SCT at 100x. Seeing isn't great (I tried 200x, but had to back down). Pleasing view at 50x to 100x.

Lucky! Atmosphere is very turbulent here in Bend, OR. This is a Zeiss binos night.

Just a few thoughts:
