Just for fun

I recently purchased something that has won the astronomy amateurs hearts already a long time ago - 8 inches cat. The plan is to use this versatile instrument in a few ways - at AstroEQ equipped CG4 mount for planetary imaging, but also with AZ mount for visual observing.

Last night it made a first light with Jupiter - no bells and whistles though. No Red Spot, no spectacular Jupiter moons events, no planetary filters, and of course poor seeing. But hey, that's first light only :)
