Too many clouds
Quote:This is one I want to try for. Problem is getting accurate mapping. It is far enough out at times it'd seem feasible in my 8". I don't know how to obtain position ephemerides however. Safari doesn't acknowledge it.

Quote:Has anyone viewed Amalthea, 5th planet of Jupiter and around 14th magnitude? What equiment did you use?
I ache, therefore I am
Quote:I thought Amalthea had some wildly large orbit that took it far enough from Jupiter - beyond Callisto anyway. If its WITHIN Callistos orbit, for me - I don't know - that's awfully challenging in the glare.

Quote:I saw it once thru the 36" at Lick. I asked about it and they looked it up. 45 min later it was at elongation.
A man is a small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.
