    Thanks! I used a Nikon D3200 through an 8" newtonian. Approx 1200mm focal length.

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    Thanks. I just wish I was set up better to take planetary pics e.g. teleconverter but I was there for the moon's eclipse party. That and I forgot that Jupiter would be above the horizon at that time fo the morning.
