Jupiter & Saturn on this Fall Evening

October 30, 2019

Well hello there, hey we finally have
some decent weather over here anyway, tonight is Wednesday October 23rd 2019 at 7:21p.m. up here in Northeastern Ohio That’s in the United States for folks who don’t know where that is all righty there we go, so over low in the
southwestern sky we have Jupiter and all four of its moons are on the left hand
side, that’s a cool look there now tonight we should have the Great Red
Spot facing us, I don’t know how well it’ll come in so let me change things up
and I’ll be right back okay poor Jup isn’t coming in too well
but that’s to be expected since it’s so low on the horizon and we’re cutting
through so much atmosphere, it’s nearing that tree over to the right, so it’s not
going to be too much longer before we’re gonna lose sight of Jupiter for the rest
of the year, so it’s nice that we can still get it even though it may not come
out well. I will try to do a stacking but I don’t know how well that’s going to
come out, that’s quite cool, uh the only other thing I can see out here by eye is
Saturn, so we’ll take this back a bit and try to head over there uh oh I don’t think it even got me in the
general direction, okay we were a bit low lets get it situated and, okay and there
we go with the duo, Saturn and Jupiter now Saturn’s in our south-southwest sky, Jupiter’s about to
head into that tree in the southwest there’s a few stars showin’ around here
which is pretty good in my light polluted sky now let’s see, Mars has already set,
Mars set before the Sun did Venus & Mercury have, so the only thing in the
evening sky here is Jupiter and Saturn Pluto has been next to Saturn most of
the summer but I haven’t been able to capture it, Neptune and Uranus are in the
nighttime sky, which again I haven’t been able to capture with my equipment and sky
conditions so and I don’t believe the moon’s gonna rise until probably after 2:00 a.m. so that’s gonna be it, just gonna be a real quick one tonight but again like I said it’s still nice to
be able to get Jupiter and Saturn they’re two of my favorite planets and it’s not
going to be too much longer before we lose sight of Jupiter and then probably
about a month after that Saturn will be gone from our evening sky so it’s gonna
be hard-pressed to find much of anything but anyway the still pictures that I’ll
most probably put in here will be from the Canon 80D, I don’t have the 90D
anymore, I had to send it back and never got a replacement and all that, but they
finally did refund the money back to my account, well they said they refunded it
but it of course hasn’t shown up yet but anyway, the video zoom footage is
here on the Nikon P1000 camera and for those that don’t know it’s a mega zoom
camera that has the lens integrated into it so you can’t change lenses on it like
you can with the Canon and Jupiter is gone, it dipped into the trees, so that’s
gonna do it then so here in the middle of the week I’m
gonna wish you all great Thursday and Friday ahead, weekend too, and hope that
you’re all safe and having a great time in your life, alrighty, you take care now,
it is 7:35 p.m. up here. Bye from Ohio Did I shut you off? I don’t think that I did. trying to get some raw footage with the Nikon we got 24 minutes, all right, that’ll do…

    I saw Mercury and Venus before it set. We are almost there. Venus is my main planet to see. Neptune and Uranus are my second/third planets to seek, unfortunately didn’t see no “shooting stars” this month. Busy.

    Great shots of Jupiter and Saturn. It generally takes special equipment to see Pluto. You can't see Pluto with your eyes. It takes a big telescope, and special pointing devices to see it.

    What part of Ohio are you in? My mom was born and raised in Dayton and then moved to Orlando when she married my dad in the mood '60s. We used to go visit my grandparents in Dayton every summer. Sadly, mom, dad and both sets of grands have all passed away. Been many years since I was in Ohio but I always enjoyed it.

    It’s almost time to say goodbye to Jupiter saddens my heart I like watching you zoom in on the big marble. Saturn is going away fast also hopefully we keep getting something from you. There were no dog’s barking or gun shots either. Thanks again for another video DJ.

    Jupiter already said 'Goodbye' to me, I can't see him from my backyard anymore 🙁
    For Neptune and Uranus, I have to wait a long time, at least Saturn is visible for the next weeks from my backyard, through my telescope, Saturn looks like on your camera, but my telescope shows Saturn with more focus than with your camera 🙂

    Thanks, I'm happy to see the objects in view aren't bouncing around like a balloon in a wind tunnel being towed by the tiny little planet Earth with it's impressive field of gravity rumored to set the universe into motion giving away the actual center of all known to generate an electronic charge via magnetic energy claimed to be Sunlight and reflection these days.

    Hi DJ
    i was spoiled when i bought my telescope back in mid august. : – )
    Jupiter and Saturn was so easy to find at midnight. ( i get home from work at midnight.)
    both planets are not in the horizon at that time of night now, late october.
    how long before the next visible planets appear ? Mars or Venus im guessing.

    Jupiter looks really big this time and hope someday you will show us both Saturn and Jupiter in this size in full color at your backyard. Changing subjct- – -I saw somewhere on youtube that a person said to consider Lenses as Assets which means they last long. So I checked my inventory, Nikon 35-70 F2.8D, 80–200 F2.8D, 105 F2.5 of '60s make, 200 F4.0, 300 F4, and 500 F8 reflex lens, mostly bought between '90 and '97 while I participted in consumer photo hobby class by VIsa Card run by a photo Professional. The 35-70 has fungus, green, and if Nikon does not clean it for a fee, I may try to do it by myself as I found a good youtube video to show how disassemble the lens and clean it. I think with addition of some tools I can give it a try just for the heck of it because if I do not do anything, the lens is just uselss bloc of metal and glass. As for two camera bodies, both look like OK and funny thing is that both have data box unit and one has a calendar software with the final year being 2019 (first year was 1994)! Long lenses were intented for recording birds but could not get enough of good ones so I changed to video, but DSLR cameras are equipped with better video software these days and I may end up buying a DSLR body as your videos give me so much fun to watch, especially you'r challenging as to how much you can do better by consumer grade equipments. Thank you as always for sharing.
