I’m so glad I finally got one good Stable night of Seeing here in the Midwest.
Here is my best close-up of Jupiter so far this season.
My jaw dropped when I finished processing my most recent data on 08-25-2022!
Finally!!!, it’s such a wonderful feeling when you can pull a decent image through all that muck in the sky, especially at 4:00am
when you are still half asleep and typically fighting our boiling atmosphere.

pretty darn good for the Midwest.
As most of you know, I’m always trying to push the limits with my gear here in Ohio.
I hope you like it, and have a great weekend everyone!
