Jupiter Phase 2 November 14th

Encouraged by my success at webcamming Jupiter with the Mak two nights before, I did some imaging runs with a 2x and 3x Barlow lens. I was expecting the runs with a 3x Barlow lens to be more than tricky, especially as I have neither GOTO technology nor a tracking drive. Not all runs appeared to work but I had enough to feel confident.

Although some detail was visible in the runs with the 3x Barlow lens it was the ones with the 2x Barlow that gave the best results.
