Jupiter taken with iPad + Newtonian 10″

Our latest Astronomy in the City event was another roaring success. Afterwards, we used the society’s telescopes to show the interested public the art of observing… and we were treated to beautiful skies! The image shown above is of Jupiter, its bands and Galilean moons visible against the dark sky. The photograph was taken with a 3rd generation iPad, and the Newtonian 10″ reflecting telescope owned by AstroSoc. It just goes to show that with a little patience and the luck of the good weather, anyone can take brilliant astrophotographs.
