Jupiter with Galileoscope

Seeing was only so-so last night, and I've always wanted to give this a try, so out came Galileo, the old ASI120MC and a GSO 3x barlow. This is a fair representation of what can be had visually from this $20 50mm achromat, complete with CA. Visual image is dimmer (including the CA) but the detail is the same. Ganymede upper right.

Good practice for the PIPP/AS/Registax work flow too. Processing was done in under 5 minutes. Keeping the scope on target at f/30 was the main challenge (I could not be bothered setting up the EQ mount for this), so attaching it to the finder clamp of my dob, thereby utilising the dob mount worked OK.
