    Mick... one day come and visit me lah.. you can go to the desert and camp out there. Day time you can enjoy the scenery of the Anza Borrego desert (an hour plus only from me) , and at night... the whole entire milky way. You dont even have to worry about camping gear.. semua i ada. (still brand new in packaging)
    Insecurity is unattractive. Smile and the whole world smiles with you.

    It's that time of the year again, Jupiter is at Opposition.



    Took this single frame shot with my Sony A6000 a few hours ago. Jupiter will be even closer in about 25 hours' time so if the weather permits, I hope to be shooting again!

    Nope, overslept and woke up at nearly 5am. Tried some shots but Jupiter was getting low in the west by then and behind thin clouds. Next few days the weather wasn't too cooperative for photography, although more than good enough for plain old fashioned eyeballing. No worries, plenty of opportunity for a few more weeks.


    Just played around with the earlier pic to see if I could pull a bit more detail out of the single shot. Not too shabby for hardly any effort (essentially a point and click pic).

    Last Saturday night. Managed to shoot Jupiter showing the GRS (Great Red Spot aka Great Orange Spot) and Io making their transits. The black dot is Io's shadow. Io is the little white dot to the right of the shadow.

    My next challenge will be to try for 2 Jovian moon transits with the GRS visible as well.
