A few months back, Jupiter was the closest it will be for the next 16 years, so I wanted to try to get some shots of it. Jupiter is covered by thick clouds, and it rotates very fast, so what you see are the clouds as they make bands of color from the rotation. The axis of rotation is perpendicular to the bands, of course. For these shots I used a 12 mm objective lens and mounted the camera on a tube beyond that lens. I may try to get some shots of Saturn, but the best opportunities this year have already passed. I have seen some nice views of Saturn in the telescope before I got the adaptor to hook up the camera.
