A co-worker lent me an adapter for connecting my Canon Rebel XS camera to my eight-inch dobsonian reflecting telescope. I used it to take the photos of crescent Venus and tonight I used it to shoot Jupiter and Uranus. In the past, I've mostly held the camera up to the eyepiece to get enlarged photos of the planets.
The photos are cropped, no other processing.
Details, and a larger photo of Jupiter and its four moons at http://bkellysky.wordpress.com/

all the best,
bob

The Jupiter image clearly shows that the South Equatorial Belt (SEB) has disappeared. The SEB disappears every 15 to 20 years for unknown reasons.
However the last SEB fading & revival only dates 3 years back.
The largest planet in the solar system is the most satisfying object for small telescope users wink.gif

Uranus is named after the ancient Greek deity of the sky Uranus the father of Cronus and grandfather of Zeus. Though it is visible to the naked eye like the five classical planets, it was never recognized as a planet by ancient observers because of its dimness and slow orbit.

Ah yes, the 'planet that dare not speak its name'.
