Seeing was particularly good on this night and was able to squeeze quite a bit of fine structure out of both the lunar craters and Jupiter. Great fun.

Certainly looks like a fun night Jim, impressive results for such a small scope.

Some beautiful Lunar shots. They always seem very crisp when taken through a refractor. A w-i-d-e-r view on Jove is always a nice change too. Nice work!
