    Just thought I'd share my terrible (but awesome) pics of Jupiter. First decent photo of a planet I've been able to take so far.

    That's a pretty nice 'scope and camera set-up. Keep pegging away at it. I haven't done any astrophotography since the film era, but it was the most technically demanding hobby ever.

    I especially like the two space invaders attacking it.
