    Thanx yall , my skills and my patience are improving at a snails pace but, I'll take it. I really would like to get a descent image of Jupiter before it's gone from my skies, limited skies from my backyard and driveway. I can't get out in the backyard because of all the rain and can't get the my 12 hp Poulan and cart up the hill with all my gear until it dries out some more, I tried and just spun mud all over the tarp cover. a028 I use both cams in my Signature, the Orion $ 50 cam does good high power images and the T510NG does good at wide field until I get a powermate and t-ring adapter.
