Here is Jupiter from Friday night, the weather in the UK has been very poor but Friday was a rare clear night, albeit very moist.
I recently upgraded my telescope to an Orion Optics OD300 and this was its first proper outing. The image through my Binoviewers was big and bright, much better than with the SPX200, and when the (pretty poor) seeing cooperated briefly there was plenty of crisp and bold detail to be seen. I loved observing the detail in the Southern Equatorial Belt, the Great Red Spot, Oval BA and the white spots in the STB, and I spent most of my time on these areas, but I did sketch the rest of the disc when the seeing was not so good.
Sadly the azimuth bearing on the new scope is a bit stiff and jerky making manual tracking whilst sketching at high power a bit of a challenge, and there is a bit of off-axis coma (could be the barlow I am misusing as an OCA) and the secondary needs a heater to stop it dewing up because I live in a marsh, so I had to keep hairdryering it. So with all these things combined I reckon I got about 30 seconds of premium observing time in the 45 minutes I was at the eyepiece.
Anyway, I will be making an EQ platform, installing some ball transfer bearings into the azimuth axis, and making a secondary mirror heater, so on my next outing, Jupiter had better watch out!
