Our very own collection of images. 


Used an Olympus C3040 Digital Camera using eyepiece projection (Afocal) with a 40mm Plossel eyepiece and 2X Ultima Barlow with  Scopetronics Digital adapter.  The hardest thing is the focus with the digital camera. Although I can get super clear focus visually, when the picture is taken the focus is off. I did capture perhaps a little hint of polar cap and surface structure if you look really close. Update! Found out later that Mars was in a global dust storm. No wonder that wasn't any structure!
9-28-2010 - Jupiter through a TeleVue NP-102 4" refractor working at f/16.4 with an ST-402ME. Click on the image and you can just make out 3 moon from left to right Ganymede, Europa, Io.
