I remember the first photo I took of Jupiter – well the first one that mattered anyway. I’d recently got a zoom adapter for my trusty old Canon G9 and I thought I’d try pointing it at Jupiter to see what I’d get. After a lot of playing with the settings, I managed to get this shot:
What you can see here is Jupiter and some of it’s moons in a big mess of light. At first it just looks like some kind of camera movement – but upon checking WorldWide Telescope I confirmed that this was the correct location of the moons from my location at that time of night.
I was hooked, naturally. I thought I’d just share a few of the more recent photos of Jupiter – both of which were taken with my shiny new Canon 7D:
Jupiter’s moons through the clouds.
Jupiter and Uranus (the bluish light at the top left)
