Description

Two friends of mine encouraged me to take Jupiter visually because they never took an unaided look at. I was sceptical about it because Jupiter is less than 19 degree above horizon and my equipment is not what you call a planet-hunter-equipment.

So I took the chance and it was an impressive late evening. I decided to take a picture so my friends will be able to show their loved ones what they had seen this evening. There was a chance two nights later. Sadly at very limiting conditions :/

This is the result. Not award winning at all but I'm quite satisfied with the result. Hoping to get another chance this season to use a barlow lens.
