Moon and Jupiter 2012-02-07

When I got home, I decided to check my reflector's collimation. It was a bit off from perfect, but I find it hard to achieve perfect collimation so I just leave it the way it is.

Since the moon is shining brightly, I took some shots as well.

After the moon, I tried to look at Jupiter and found that I could see some details on the surface. Not wanting to miss the somewhat "okay" seeing, I took out my favorite planetary scope, a 102mm mak-cass, and observed a bit. At high magnification, the disk was boiling at the edge, but not too bad. I then took my camera and captured some clips. After processing the best clip, the result is shown below.
