Day 33 is the 2nd half of yesterday's post.  The seeing conditions deteriorated but I like seeing the GRS and Jr in the same shot.Photo: A day late day 44 of my 1 a day spring cleaning...

This was a hangout that was planned to be an on-air one by +Mitchell Duke and myself, but youtube was down for maintenance and so we only got +Ryan Meader and +Paul Stewart .  Ok, today's day 45, back to it!Photo: Day 45 of the one a day spring cleaning might bring me closer to ending the books on 2012's Jupiter.  This was a great view of GRS and Jr from a hangout with +Cory Schmitz and +Chris Ridgway 
Good times guys, where'd all our clear skies go???Photo: Day46 brings me to a clean main computer.  That makes 2 of the them now.  Now onto the home server and external drives which are loaded with old stuff!  I wonder how long this spring cleaning can go on for?!
So today's image is from my 8" SCT at f/25 using everyones favorite +Virtual Star Party color planet cam the DBK.21AU618.AS cam from +Astronomy Cameras   The 8" had just had the dec gears replaced by yours truly and is going to get an upgrade to house the DSLR and 200mm f/4 lens for some great wide-field shots soon!
