Jupiter last night. I finally had some good weather after the massive thunderstorms that have been dumping rain from the Gulf of Mexico.

12 inch LX200GPS, ToUcam, 3x Televue Barlow, no diagonal, Optec TCF-S focuser.

This is the first time I had used the Optec for planetary viewing and it is really awesome. Vey precise focusing control.

Kirk -

Beautiful image.

I have been using an auxilliary focuser on my 10" mak for planetary imaging. With the tiny chip size of the webcam I find it really cuts down the time spent on focusing.

Wow, very nice!! Lots of subtle detail all over the planet. I hope you get more good nights of seeing soon.
