It’s a super clear night here in Boise, and the moon is shining bright and proud. Normally, I’d be trying to get the largest, sharpest image of our nearest celestial neighbor. But tonight the spec to its top right grabbed my attention. I pulled out our smaller Canon Rebel APC-S sensor with the 70-300mm lens and 1.4x adapter to get a 628mm 35mm equivalent shot of the tiny Jovian dot.
I pulled the image in Photoshop and zoomed in 5 times and turned up the clarity slightly. And we can now see the hints of the gas layers in in planet. Makes me want a real telescope!
