Well I checked the weather and it wasn't looking so good but their were huge breaks in the clouds and Jupiter is well paced, therefore I decided to try some planetary imaging. First I eyeballed Jupiter visually and saw 2x moons and all of the prominent equatorial bands. The human eye is an amazing instrument that can easily copy with the changing variation in seeing. 


Aldebaran and the Hydes looked really nice although there was thin high level cloud passing very close by. M45 the Pleiades always looks impressive even visually. 


Well I manage to take a nice picture of my telescope at least. You can just make out Jupiter, Aldebaran, Hydes and M45 in the image.
