  1. Stepped outside and saw Jupiter and Saturn. Ohhh, it's tempting but I really really need to go to bed..  :P

      Aw, and you picked the perfect avatar for the occasion too. :adorkable:

  2. My thoughts exactly! Also, I've noticed that lots of older folks seem to confuse millennials with 18-22yr old college students. Millennials are either in their 30's or very close to it. I would know, 30 is right around the block for me.
  3. I love this thread! Saturn is my favorite planet. @Kyoshi and @Lucky Bolt, Jupiter reveals different cloud structures when viewed in the methane absorption band at 889nm. Some Methane images of Jupiter and Saturn I took last summer with the 16" telescope:

      You’re welcome, my Friend! :D 

  5. The forecast was way off last nite. Above average conditions was predicted, but my video clearly shows a lot of turbulence. The portions where I defocus the planet really show it. Yuck! :yuck:

    The two images demonstrate the importance of using an atmospheric dispersion corrector. You can see the red and blue tinges at the edges of the planet, along with significant blurring of details. 

    Hope y'all enjoy.
