Triple Transit of Jupiters Moons

Postby Opel star » 14 Oct 2013, 23:07

Waited for the transit for weeks but the weather report said it was going to be cloudy all night :( But I set the alarm clock anyway :) About 5 in the morning it cleared :D I Managed to get some pics of the transit! It was very windy and the scope was getting blown about all over the place,then the clouds came back and ruined the fun :roll: Pics are a bit blurry but still happy I got them :D It was a bit of good luck that the red spot was out at the same time!
Scope was the c11 and canon 550d dslr. Video stacked in Registax.
