I really like the giant planet, and although my own attempts at imaging it are far from the best, it's still quite fun trying to capture some detail or perhaps the Great red spot or even a moon in transit.

Its currently on its way back as a bright presence in the early morning sky and can be seen rising in the east just before dawn.

Soon it will be high in the sky a lot earlier and make a better target for planetary imagers, being higher up means less murky atmosphere to see through.

I never know which category to put astro pics in, I guess technically it's 'Nature' but not wildlife, and it's 'Landscape' but definitely not travel, it might be Specialist but it's not really abstract . . .

Super. It's hard enough trying to find the moon on full zoom so I can't imagine what taking these sort of shots must be like. I'm guessing that a moon to the left of the planet?

It's a very nice capture most of us wouldn't know we're to start as for what category I think we all have that problem sometimes. But I have noticed you can change the category's onece you start trying to change them a box comes up so you can alter or miss part of the title. If stuck though I would just use bothSmile

Yes, thats a moon to the left - they turn up in a lot of Jupiter pics, sometimes it's difficult to get them to show without overexposing the planet but every now and then they seem to survive the stacking process with no extra editing needed.

Thank you for the nice comments Smile
