Evening session

I was out for an evening session at 2200 GMT. It was nice to me reunited with my Mak (127mm Maksutov). Jupiter looked nice at low power, with cloud belts showing clearly and the moons made a nice pattern. I took some shots with my compact digital camera.

I then proceeded to webcam the planet, at high brightness to capture the moons that were close in and other runs to capture the planetary detail. I used a neutral density moon filter and this showed some cloud belts. I also used the Trust webcam instead of the SPC, as it had produced the best results on Jupiter to date. 

I also did some widefield shots of the overhead sky, Jupiter in Taurus and Gemini.
