It's at the Sun-Earth L1 Lagrangian point, for monitoring solar winds among other things. Link.

The most interesting thing to me about the far side of the moon is the lack of maria. Due to the moon being tidally locked with the Earth during its formative years, our side of the moon was exposed to the still-very-hot earth which caused the moon's crust facing us to cool differently and smooth out into the distinctive plains we're used to seeing.

second attempt at Jupiter with a 90mm Mak-Cass and a DSLR submitted by gunman to Astrophotography

This is another photo I took a few months ago, but I thought I'd submit it here to try to help as we try to get this subverse going.

This was shot 2015-03-30 at about 10:00 PM Mountain Daylight Time from my front yard in rural southeast Idaho. Temperature was around 60 °F, seeing was pretty good.

This was shot through my Celestron C90 (90mm aperture, 1250 mm focal length, f/13.89 focal ratio) with a Nikon D7000 at prime focus and a 2x barlow. I shot about 200 frames (1/8", ISO 400) and stacked the best 50 or so. I processed the frames using PIPP for centering and cropping, AviStack for alignment, stacking, and wavelet sharpening, and Gimp for levels adjustment.

I think I've improved noticeably since my first attempt at Jupiter several months prior with the same equipment. Last time I was shooting using the DSLR's video mode, which gave me more frames but a lower resolution. This time I shot a lot fewer frames but they were a lot larger, so I think it allowed me to get more detail. I'm still not totally happy with the amount of noise and clarity, but I've learned a lot and I think I'm getting better.

I'm open to thoughts and suggestions!

What were you doing 10 years ago, on August 5, 2005? submitted by EpicGusher to AskVoat

I did! It was like $6/month. Living in a very rural area there weren't a lot of options for high-speed yet. I've got 50 megabit now, it's much nicer.
