Hello All,
I could not get to sleep so I went outside about 12:30 AM. Glad I did. The seeing was pretty good but there was a thick haze, that was getting worse, so I had to drop down from a 3X barlow to a 2.5X Powermate. FYI.

TMB 8" F/9
2.5X Powermate
Seeing 8/10. Thick Haze.
1:01- 1:04 AM EST March 30, 2005 (6:01-04 UT March 30, 2005).
Atik color camera, Registax, Photoshiop.

Neat image Jim. I love the deep colors of Jupiter's boring side! I feel for you about the haze. I had the same problem last night.
