You get better seeing through a window than I do from my backyard.

I second that. Viewing conditions in my backyard ( Middlesex County N.J.)  never seem to be favorable when I'm able to get outside to view.

 

Your image is very nice, even looks like you can see just a tease of detail on two of the four moons. 

 

Awesome job, especially for a window viewing session. waytogo.gif

Hello, Don,

 

I used a ZWO 290 camera,  an ED120 SW Equinox refractor UV/IR filter and a x2 TeleVue Barlow..

I shot at 82 fps for 16b/pixel, but only 7394 frames (during about 90 sec).

Not big deal. smile.gif

 

Gabriel.

Wow, that’s pretty cool!

 

What kind of window? (just kidding)

 

But seriously, was that through your window glass, or with the window open? Was there heat coming off a neighboring roof? Apartment and parking lot lights and stuff, or are you looking over a dark area?

Thanks.bow.gif waytogo.gif  Of course, through the window open. No, no heat coming. The air was stable. Apartment and parking  lot lights but didn't influenced much, as I see. smile.gif

Just be sure that you are not mistaken for a creepy, weirdo voyeur! 

 

Police knocking on your door. " Excuse us sir but we have been getting complaints of someone on this floor spying on the neighbouring apartment. Could you show us what your telescope is pointing at?"

You just never know.

 

Clear skies and clean windows. LOL!
