March 00 Observations

Saturn, Jupiter, Moon and Mars running from upper center to lower right. Mars is to the right of the Moon.


Jupiter.-- Basically an unfocussed image using 10mm eyepiece on 8" Dob with camera
at 2.5X digital zoom. This image is an integration of three 1/4 second exposures.
No dark frame was subtracted. Each frame was individually adjusted in contrast, brightness
and unsharp masking was applied. Jacking up the power and obtaining optimum focus
is the next step. I like this camera!


A solar projection image.
