Well, it's an attempt.  This was taken at 1/30th, f/8, 3200 ISO and is dramatically cropped from the original.  The lens was a Vivitar Series 1 500mm with a 2x converter.

Moisture covered the front element of the lens, but I was too hurt to shoot again.  I shall try again tonight and make my adjustments.

I learned:

  1. I need a stool to do this.  My back gave out after only 14 shots.
  2. I must remember to defog the lens.
  3. I need to figure out how to reduce vibration.  I already have it shooting on timed exposure.  I think I can lock the mirror up.
  4. Exposure is ok.  However, if I can get the vibration taken care of, then I can drop the shutter speed and the ISO and thus, increase the clarity.
  5. It is really cool that even with all these misgivings, you can see the colors of Jupiter.
