Jupiter during a GRS transit. Nothing special, but it was great to be out again tonight after suffering through just absolutely dismal weather for weeks. Later tonight, the moon…

 

Happy new year!

Tell me about it - I haven't seen the sun or a blue sky for weeks as well! I've had to dust off my scopes laugh.gif

Here’s a photo of the moon in April.  It looks MUCH better through the eyepiece than the camera.  I think I stacked about 100 images here.  Also should be in color.  Camera is ASI102MC, through the axial port with a 16mm eyepiece in the optics chain.
 

 

Incredible detail. Thanks for posting.

Jupiter and Uranus together in the evening sky. iPhone 12 Pro to the 32mm eyepiece of my 3.5 at 43.75x magnification. No mount, no tracking… just a handheld mess, with the pair about 1° apart, but I think I got them.

Here’s tonight’s close encounter between Jupiter and Uranus, with an unknown star and a jet passing through the frame as the image was taken. iPhone 12 Pro to the 20mm eyepiece of my Q3.5 at 70x magnification.

Here's the full moon from last week, with a Questar 3.5" and Canon EOS R3

I have a dedicated Astro-Camera on order, but using what I have so far

I was able to capture Jupiter yesterday at 12.41pm. Here it is scaled next to an image of Venus I grabbed last week, reflecting the size difference. I used our roof eave as a ‘shadow guide.’

Never saw Venus as it was too close to the approaching sun.

Edit:

For you helpful trigonometry majors out there, here it is by the numbers:

Sun: RA 04 hr 00min 57sec, Dec +20° 37’ 12”
Jupiter: RA 03 hr 48min 19sec, Dec +19° 15’ 11”

Using an online angular separation tool, Jupiter and the Sun were 3.2685° apart when the image was taken.
