Well since the imaging went up the creek without a paddle, I decided to throw some eyepieces into the Mewlon.
I have forgotten how nice it is just to look thought a telescope instead of imaging all of the time. The seeing was average and the transparency was poor, however, I could make out quite easily the equatorial bands and some of the detail in the polar region. however, this tended to flicker into and out of view due to the seeing. Jupiter was flanked quite close in by the main moons, they were all with 1.5 diameters of Jupiter.
The colour of the bands was descernable with the darker bands were obviously clearer on the night.
Started with my TAK 25mm LE, then moved to the WO 16mm and finished the session with the WO 7mm. I was going to try the Celestron barlow with the 25mm LE for a comparison but in the end I didn't!
