Olympus Digital Camera Image: Jupiter

Eyepiece projection imaging with digital cameras has become very popular among hobbyist astronomers. The best way is to have an eyepiece projection adapter and excellent eyepiece optics. I have neither since I have put my money into CCD cameras up to this point, but thought I'd try anyway. This Jupiter image was acquired with my Olympus C3000 3.3 megapixel camera hand held at 170x in the C11.
