Spent two hours today tracking Jupiter. Could not pass up it going right across my FOV from the balcony. All four satellites were visible.

Pics are cell phone camera stuck to view finder by hand.
Is it just me, but Jupiter looks helluva like the moon. :lol: Actually, that is the moon. Kalash was are you smoking man? Or drinking? Please tell us you aint drunk with ya shirt off snuggling up to some dumpling lady. :lol:

Those perceptive Georgians can't be fooled. The second Pic is Jupiter.

That's cool, Kalash. We have a hobby-grade telescope but can see Saturn's rings with it. Amazing how accessible this stuff is to those who are interested. Did you track the ISS when it went overhead a few months ago?

Yep, I got an app that alerts me when ISS flies over.

And I agree we are living in unprecedented time of information and 'tool' accessibility. My telescope with carry bag, extra lenses and whole 9 yards cost me $250.
