Hi all,

Here is my first attempt at a Jupiter image from his morning. As it turned out, it was a bit of a luxury as the seeing conditions and transparency were excellent.

One reason for my long period of astronomical quietness was that I was waiting for the RA motor and encoder on my ancient AP900 mount to be repaired by AstroPhysics in the US. Wonderful service as usual from AP, but it got held up in UK Customs for ages!

  1. Excellent detail here Ian – and the colours are fantastic in this shot – I particularly like the turquoise mid planet. I’ll look forward to your work on this as I intend to attempt some images, yours serve as (unobtainable) benchmarks 🙂
