This isn’t a patch on what I could see through the telescope, but it’s my first attempt at capturing Jupiter with the NexImage:

In the telescope, I could make out the four main moons of Jupiter as well, but NexImage didn’t pick them up.  In fairness, it’s not a great night – quite a lot of light clouds around, so not the best night for photography!

Nice moon tonight!

This is at f/10.

Had another bash at Jupiter and could see the two main stripes quite clearly in the telescope.  Got closer to capturing a picture of it this time, but just as I got everything lined up and started to focus … the laptop went into power saving mode and switched off!!  This happened a couple of times and was really starting to irritate me, so I moved onto the moon since it had appeared by that point.

We’re forecast to have a couple of clear nights, so hopefully I’ll get out again tomorrow.

Here’s the moon video that the picture was generated from:
