    OK, Jupiter is about at it's closest to Earth for the whole year. Soon, it'll start moving off and other planets will dominate the night sky. So, get yer long lens out and have at it. This was a 1/60 exposure, ISO 200, and f/5.6 with a 300mm focal length on the Canon. I also shot some with my Nikon FE, a 500mm prime and a 2x teleconverter... we'll see about those later.

    The only post done was a little brightening on the moons to bring them out.

    300mm! What the heck. I was looking at Jupiter the other night with a 700mm telescope with a 3x eyepiece and still couldn't see it that big! My 300mm Sigma won't even fill the frame with the moon!

    Are you sure it was only 300mm, lol. WTF. Is the mega pixels? You can blow yours up more?

    That's a crop from a 15.1mp picture.

    Thanks, all! Jupiter is almost like the moon in that it's very bright and you have to be careful not to overexpose if you want more than a smudge- then you have to worry about losing her moons.
