Gorgeous clear night in Kendal tonight, the Moon looked spectacular in my 4.5" scope. Took some pix, didn't turn out too bad...

Saturn looked really nice too, with at least 3 of the "other" moons visible. smile.gif

A photo of Jupiter and Uranus. Hand-held Canon Rebel XS 2 seconds with ISO 800 F5.6 through an 8-inch dobsonian with a 50mm OPT wide view eyepiece. Gives an approximation of what people can see through a telescope.
Jupiter and Uranus are less than a degree apart now, so they can fit together in a wide-field eyepiece.

The enclosed photo is cropped from the larger photo at my Heads UP! blog at bkellysky.wordpress.com, which has a bit more commentary.

Neat. You can really see Uranus's blue-green color is contrasted to the yellowish Galileans, while all are similarly bright.
