Jupiter (7:40pm, 29-Oct-2010)

I used an Orion XT-8 Dobsonian reflector, mounted on a Takahashi EM-200 mount to take this picture.  Taken with a Phillips ToUCam Pro coupled to a Televue 2.5x PowerMate (e.f.l. 3000mm).

Jupiter (27-Apr-2006)

The seeing was very steady the night I took this, and I was able to get my 90mm refractor up to 4000mm f.l. without much degradation.  I achieved this by stacking a 5x PowerMate on the 1.6x Extender-Q.
