Equipment
8 INCH DOBSONIAN REFLECTOR, AND POINT AND SHOOT DIGITAL CAMERA. I HELD THE CAMERA UP TO THE LENS OF THE TELESCOPE, AND TOOK THIS PICTURE. FOR SOME REASON, HAVING THE AUTO-FLASH ON WAS NESSESARY. LOW TECH - SUPRISING RESULT
Description
GANYMEDE'S SHADOW WAS BEGINNING IT'S TREK ACROSS THE FACE OF JUPITER, BUT BEFORE THE MOON COULD BLEND IN WITH JUPITER'S CLOUDS, I SNAPPED THIS PICTURE.
