Outstanding imagery of Jupiter. The moon looks like you could touch it. It is clearer than the Clementine photos. I was on map a planet.org a many times looking at the moon. I saw some of those straight lines on the moon's surface, like in your vid. They almost look like aquaducts, or roads. I also saw structures that resembled vines or branches sitting the surface. They appeared to cast shadows. Going by the longitude coordinates, I estimated them to be over 20 miles long. I saved several of these photos, and plan to post a compilation to youtube at some point.

There are lots of mountains near Terrace BC.  What altitude were you at?  The atmosphere looks very calm in your videos.  Have you tried processing your videos to make higher detail still images?

I took this from downtown, so about 600' above sea level. It was a rare night, we get about on average, 4-5 nights of good atmospheric seeing per year. I have stacked some of my videos with good results on Saturn, Mars and the Moon.

:-o Its a 12.5" aperture scope. Why lines on Jupiter are not visible? Moon was amazing...

what kind of view of the details of the International Space Station can you capture with this telescope? could you see the solar panels or the shape of it? nice views of the moon I feel I am about to land right on it

I just checked out those eyepieces.  Say, they should really make the views through my $29.99 Surplus Shed objective lenses really stand out.  ha ha

Very nice I get some excellent views with my 6". Moderate detail but I was hoping to resolve the Cassini division on Saturn. Even though I haven't been able to see as much as I would have liked I am pretty impressed by it. Orion Starblast 6". BC is my home as well in Kamloops :) Clear skies :)

Wow! I didn't realise you could see the moon that clearly through a telescope. Thanks for the video.

+Redshift40 I've got to get me a telescope. Can you see where the moon landing site was or is that too much of a push?
Report spam or abuse
You can see the spots where they have landed. You won't see the landers though. From earth you would need a telescope 600 feet across to resolve something that small. Even the Hubble can't resolve something that small.

@johncbradley1 -anywhere from $500-$2000+ should get you a good one. If you have the room, get the biggest you can. Only get a brand name scope or custom. Never buy a scope like Tasco or Bushnell.

do you mean the little dot below Jupiter? If so, that would be Io.

So many craters... just think if the moon hadn't been in the way those asteroids might have crashed into us instead.

If you get it soon, Jupiter is going to be lost in twilight in the next month. You will be able to see many galaxies, globular clusters and nebula.

You tube has a good stabilization utility. It would take away the shake. It's somewhere in your video options.

Wow, that's impressive. I'm using a 10" Meade Schmidt-Newtonian (f/4 with corrector plate) and can't get a view anywhere near that good. My collimation's good and the seeing here is reasonable, but I can see cloud bands and then occasionally in moments of good seeing I'll catch a glimpse of some cloud band features. I'm considering upgrading to a 12" and moving to a completely rural area - so fingers crossed!

@Edsan91 Thanks man, glad you enjoy! I need a HD camera, mount and a EQ platform next. But most of all, for it to stop raining 300 days out of the year.

How do you capture these with your telescope, do you use a specific camera?

Wow. I love your videos, but the reply you wrote (the one about the "hood" and "smokin my rock") to the person who criticized the music is disgusting.

I kinda like the tiny shaking, believe it or not. If it was 100% still, it would be just as good as an image (since there is no moving objects there). So then you could just upload some images instead. And then we could just go on Google Images to check out some images there instead. I love it they way it is. Got the feeling that I'm the one actually seeing through the scope ^^

Because it hits home that you are tiny and insignificant in relation to the universe and makes you appreciate the fact that you are a miniscule part of a beautiful thing called existence. The music might hit a chord with you too but that is also insignificant really. Humans think they are clever, but we are ignorant really. We have no idea, that is why looking at stuff like this puts you in your place and smacks you with a reality belt! These things are here to enjoy and respect.

@johncbradley1 -that is a good beginners scope. I think you will have fun with it. Buy some good eye pieces. Though you may change scopes over time, you will always have the same eye pieces. Get a low, med and high power, and a 2X barlow (this will double your EP's)

you could have played across the universe, that would also be epic

You still have great detail in that video. Can you see any of the Apollo landing site with that telescope?

There are adapters that clamp a ring around the focuser and screw into the bottom of your camera (the tripod mount hole). These are usually adjustable and work much better than hand holding. Alternately, if you have a camera with a removable lens (like a film or digital slr) you can get a "T adapter". It attaches in place of the lens and lets you put your camera on your scope just like an eyepiece. You will have to slide your scope forward in the mount rings to adjust the balance. Cheers :)

Any of the name brand scopes ( Celestron, Meade, Orion ) are pretty good. The thing you should spend the money on is good quality eyepieces. They will last a lifetime and work with any scope you get down the road. If you can afford them later, I recommend the SMC Pentax EP's. Get at least one of them. All together you only need 3 EP's - a high, med. and low power. Then get a 2-3X barlow lens. It will double what you have. The barlow - Orion Shorty is a good buy.

i tried looking at the sun and the moon with my 5" spaceprob and there was some kind of distortion at times, similiar to one you get on your moon shot. object would go out of focus during this distortion, any thoughts what it might be? thanks

I currently own an 8"inch dobsonian telescope, but in a few days I am buying a large aperture 12"inch dobsonian with a 6mm televue lense the lens itself is valued at $380. has anyone here got any experience with this sort of optics and apperture? I'm wondering what I can see in comparison to the 8" which has regular quality lenses.
