Caught My First Glimpse of Jupiter!

Postby Pullock » Sun Apr 15, 2018 1:55 am

At about midnight (2 hours ago) I spotted something very bright in the sky, this is also the first clear night we've had in a while, So I grabbed my telescope, set it up and was amazed to spot Jupiter and a few of it's larger moons. I did struggle to get it focused and get it stabilized but for a first attempt I'm very happy with what I got to see, hoping to catch Saturn soon!
