Red Spot transit question
Posted 25 March 2013 - 11:44 AM
I am attempting to visually observe the Great Red Spot and so far have been unsuccessful. I am using the embedded web app on the Sky & Telescope website to figure out transit times. Assuming the times listed are correct for my offset, how long should it take before the spot is "centered"? With my scope, I don't think I'll be able to see it when just a portion is visible. I'm using a Vixen ED80sf with 6mm and 12mm Vixen lenses. Pretty hard to make out a number of features in general so the spot sort of needs to be "in my face" for me to see it.

It's a challenging thing, sometimes.

I've been using Jupiter 2 for several years.
