Astrophotography – Jupiter

Jupiter

I have been taking the Celestron 130 SLT telescope out on the weekends. Like most first-timers, I am just blown away by the sights in the night sky. Everything except Jupiter and Saturn have been a bright dot or a not-so-bright dot, so no views of galaxies quite yet.

I took this picture of Jupiter, and I’m so tickled to see one of the major cloud bands.
