Well, I reckon I've got until about mid July before Jupiter is setting too low to still be visible. The next logical step is to use the motor drive as the Explorer is a tad big for me to get accurately on target with the backlash from the mount. It can be de-clutched when not in use and I'm hoping it might facilitate steadier viewing. I've ordered a wide angle 10mm Celestron EP which may also help in this respect. Ultimately I will acquire a GOTO when I upgrade. I've got my eye on a Celestron NexStar. But for now, I want to suss the Newtonian out. Which is both great fun and great physical therapy for me. I've even bought batteries for the clock-drive! ;)
