Got my hands on 10" Meade scope and decided to do some planetary imaging.

Turned out pretty good, I would say, better that I expected - I think I even captured some brightness pattern on Ganymede despite rether poor seenig. Pretty happy with the result considering that this is my first palenetary photo ever.

PS. The scope isn't mine, borrowed it from Houston Astronomical Society. A very solid gear!
