I recently looked at Jupiter through a 12" Dobsonian fitted with a 4mm eyepiece, 2x barlow lens, and different color filters.  It's pretty amazing, but I think my favorite is the Orion Nebula (M42).

Kol, that Jupiter image came out very decent for an iPhone.

an image of Jupiter (resized to scale) from my StarShoot camera

The iPhone had a glary washed out white Jupiter, I placed the proper image of Jupiter from my actual astrophotography capable camera over it

My telescope is a National Geographic one. It sucks.

Saturn on iPhone. This weekend or sometime before I'll get my proper astrophotography camera set up and I'll take some better images.

Also I can see at least 4 of the moons some of the time. Last Saturday I saw Titan, Rhea, Dione, and Tethys, but last night (earlier today, to my body) I only saw Titan, Rhea, and Dione. I think because Tethys was a bit close to Saturn I couldn't see it. I'm trying to mark my observations down in a log so I can basically predict their locations and everything. Rederive the Saturnian satellites' orbits from my own telescope. I can do that, right? :P

I'm getting an eyepiece camera in a few days anyway
Nearly four years. Four years and I never really had success with it aside from with the sun and the moon and other frustrations but tonight...

Tonight I triumphed.
