This was first posted on the AP users group. Damian Peach visited with Jim Phillips and made the following video of Jupiter's rotation:

Wow!!!

All the images were made with the AP Mak except one that was made with a TMB 10" F/9 apo.

I'm going to send that guy the bottom of a broken Coke bottle, and I'd bet I'll get a decently sharp image of the Moon back.

I felt like I was orbiting. To do such work :bow: :bow: with a 10" makes me wonder what he could achieve with a *large* scope.
