Still Incredibly Cold

But I was able to get some nice pictures before the water vapor started to turn into mist.

This was a prime focus photograph, 1/350th of a second, ISO 100, 2000mm f/4.5, improved slightly on contrast in GIMP.

Eyepiece projection is still an area that I am not doing a great job on.  At least you can see the bands on Jupiter in this picture.  In my defense, the mist was definitely becoming a problem, and the Moon was washing out the detail.
This was 1/350 of a second exposure, ISO 1600, using an 18mm eyepiece projection with the 2000mm mirror.
