20080813 Jupiter

I almost lost interest in astronomy after the total solar eclipse trip.

The view was just so impressive and it overwhelmed everything else. The dark sky there was similar, so that I really think it's worthless to do astronomy in Hong Kong.

Anyway, I told myself that I should start doing something or else I will really lost interest.

Seeing at something like 2-3/10, very poor, I can never make sure the correctness of the focus as well as the collimation which I tried to tweak tonight with the DBK. Transparency like 7/10.

C5 at f/30 (Tele Vue 3x), DBK 21AF04, 20080813 2238 (GMT+8):-

I guess I should fine tune the collimation when seeing gets better.
