October 7, 1999

Trying to better "freeze" the image, I took some very short (1/125 sec) exposure shots of Jupiter. I'm not sure what I was thinking, because I only took 25 of them. To get above the noise threshold I really need to combine more than that.

By then, Gamma Aries was in a pretty good position and I figured I'd take a crack at a binary star. Seeing really wasn't all that great, but the prime focus shots turned out ok.
