    I tried an experiment to see if I could see objects during the day. I left my scope on last night so I could use the goto to locate objects. I found Jupiter, Saturn and Venus. This is a photo of Jupiter by just putting my camera up to the eyepiece. I could still see the bands but not the moons. Saturn was dim but you could see the rings. Venus was bright. This was at 8:00am when the sun was up. Maybe we have an alternate astronomy hobby 🙂

    Another example of PDS. It’s infecting other forums now.

    I’ve seen stars in my 12″ during the day.
