It was a pretty cool night with being able to get a faint glimpse of the Lagoon Nebula. During the long exposure filming of the Nebula, a solid lit white object flew down past it at an angle. The brightness reminded me of the ISS, but at the time the photo was shot at 9:12:35pm, the ISS was below the horizon for me.

I did check SkySafari Pro for any other satellites that may have zipped past, but there were none at that time and angle, so I don't know what it was. The white object couldn't be seen by eye and definitely wasn't an airplane as you'll see from the comparison, and it didn't look like a meteorite or comet to me.

The white streak was a 13 second shot with F6.3 and 3200 ISO at 200mm, while the airplane streak was at 3.2 seconds at F5.6 & 1250 ISO at 150mm.

Anyway, Saturn was in the South, Jupiter in the SW, and in between the 2 of them was the Lagoon Nebula in the band of the Milky Way.

A stormy night in Ohio. The air was crackling with electricity for about an hour. In all my long years here, I've never seen so much constant lightning sparking up every few seconds and for such a long period of time. So the flashes first caught my attention and then what looked like a funnel cloud forming, then multiple ones, and heading right towards the house. Thank goodness they went back up and flew away. :)

Sorry the security camera footage is so grainy. Canon 80D used at the end. Flock of birds around 3:48 in.

I wasn't prepared for videoing the planets as I had gone out just to take photos with the Canon 80D, but ended up hitting record anyway. The video portion is quite poor, but still it's nice to say hello to everyone - so Hello there :)

Sky conditions were poor yet again but after being shut-out for so many days, we gave it a go anyway. The eerie looking moon was being drenched in the muck of the SE sky. Jupiter was heading down for the night in the SW, and Saturn was just journeying along in the SSW.

We get to start the night out with Saturn who was close to knocking on Luna's door. There was a strange blip that happened in a split second that obscured the planet for a nano moment - and it wasn't a tree branch as I had previously moved the rig over so nothing was in the way of the line of sight.

Anyway, another nano-second blip of something flying down and curving around the moon when it was overexposed - not sure what that was. Over to Jupiter but nothing odd happened (lol).

No video tonight, just some photos of the trio as I was too tired to go out and film, review, edit, and all that good stuff, but I just wanted to say hello and thank you also.

Pictures will be brighter than the exposure shot and the darker sky outside due to my insistent desire to see the blue sky and pretty clouds, along with that gorgeous willow tree. :)

Sorry for the lateness and the length, but there was so much footage to get through it took 14 hours to put this together.

Anyway, the next door neighbor's were our 74% lit Moon & Jupiter with its Great Red Spot showing tonight (last night) in the Southern sky, and then a bit later Saturn finally cleared the trees for a looksee.

Oh yeah, please check out Jim's footage of the moon that he captured with his telescope. He got some sensational captures. It's only 3 minutes long and well worth the watch.

I couldn't pass up the pretty white moon by that gorgeous willow tree. It was to be a short one but after saying my first farewell, all these critters started zig-zagging all over the place, so there's 3 extra minutes of them zipping around (lol).

It's a shame my hopes and expectations of camera planet hunting with this Sigma lens didn't work out but it just didn't produce the clearer and crisper images of the planets like I had hoped, besides being too heavy for me. I do push the limits with a camera and realize you can't get telescope quality by doing this, but it's a fun challenge to try.

This Sigma lens is extremely nice and well made too. I would recommend it even though it's a bit too much for this old gal to handle.

The Moon was 53% lit in the cloudy SW sky, then Jupiter and later Saturn in the South.

I'm not the best at doing these comparisons so please cut me some slack (lol).

This was my first try using the lens which went on sale a few days ago. I also ordered the Sigma TX-2001 2x Teleconverter, but haven't tried it yet. I'm hoping to get better/clearer video footage of the planets with this setup - when the sky allows that is.

Nikon P1000 vs the Sigma 60-600mm Sports Lens on the Canon 80D.

The 80D is a crop sensor camera which has a 3x-10x in-camera digital zoom, so it should be around 96-960mm for the crop sensor & around 2880-9600mm (lens at 600mm) with the 3x-10x in-camera digital zoom on.

This video will be a poor example of the ability of this lens and camera. I shouldn't even upload it. The sky conditions were so poor after rain storms this evening and clouds all around. Please don't judge the quality too harshly - a calmer & clear night should give better results.

This Sigma Sports Lens is a Beast! It weighs 9 pounds and appears to be solidly built. The daytime comparison footage between the Nikon P1000 and Canon/Sigma was a better example - clips included in this video.

We have our trio again tonight with the 12% Crescent in the WNW, then over to Jupiter in the South - about an hour later Saturn jogged out from the trees. More halo rings again tonight.

That sly moon has been gone for way too long - it was nice to see the thin sliver again. So we start with the Crescent in the WNW, then over to Jupiter in the South, but had to wait a few hours to then get Saturn to round out the evening.

Saturn made me stay up later since it was playing dodge-em with the trees (little bugger) but determination won out. Jupiter starts off the evening along with Antares over in the South, and then much later Saturn breaks free.

This came out quite poorly, mainly Jupiter, so you may want to give it a pass. :)

Later than usual in hopes of not having to contend with a tree diving Saturn and the ringed one came out quite well, but then there was poor Jupiter. Ole Jup got clobbered by clouds so it came out lousy. Photos are sub-par also.

Just another tour around the 2 large planets in our solar neighborhood since they're the only ones out and about this time of night. Also at the end, showing how difficult it is to see anything on the monitor - it's mainly blackness.

Note - There will be many edits in this video to cut down on time and useless jitters, along with including quite a few overlays. If that's bothersome to the few of you that abhor it, then you may want to give this a miss.

Saturn in the SE with Jupiter in the South and the Rascal Raccoon nipping at my heels (lol).

The stacking of the planets came out pretty decent tonight, though not on the level of Hunter & Jim's telescope captures. It was cool to see Europa so close to Jupiter.

Antares & Jupiter in the Southern Sky, and Saturn in the tree branches over in the SE.

Oh, it was a good thing that I had the Tascam mini audio recorder as a backup, because twice the audio bugged out on the camera when going into the Menu Settings. I had thought about sending it back - not now :)

Sorry in advance for the bit of a moan, I didn't have my morning coffee yet (lol)

Moon 65% lit high up in the SW Sky.
Testing of the Tascam DR-10L mini-recorder with the Azden SMX-30 mic that I usually have on the camera itself but used with the little recorder instead. At 6:35 in is when the test between the Azden & the Tascam recorder versus the (7:09) Tascam lavalier mic begins. The dual tracks were added together in Final Cut Pro of the lapel mic & it sounded better than my previous testing yesterday. The Azden won out yesterday but now today it seems the lavalier did (lol)

It's been too long since we last filmed the Sun so I wanted to take a look at ole Sol.

Out of the blue, my Orion SynScan V5 hand controller wouldn't work properly - the handset could move the mount so it has power, but the display information wouldn't show - it was lit up but blank. So I had to use the SynScan Pro app on the phone instead. Bummer.

The outer band of clouds from the Gulf storm seems to have reached us merging with clouds from the north so viewing wasn't good here tonight. There were some cool shots of the Moon and a flock of birds in a V formation photo-bombing the satellite, and the moon was such a pretty light colored yellow. The planets, Saturn & Jupiter, didn't come out well when zoomed in because of the poor sky conditions.

Okay, here's the follow-up video of the testing of those 2 Kenko teleconverters (2x & 1.4X) on the Canon 80D with the Tamron 18-400mm lens. I wanted to see how well it does with both converters and using the in-camera 10x digital zoom the Canon has.

Bottom Line - it didn't come out too well, especially Saturn, so I think the Nikon P1000 wins for zooming this far. :)

With all the unusual activity that takes place up in our skies, along with the beauty up yonder, I wanted to keep a record of what's happening here in NE Ohio where I live (41° latitude). I've grown distrustful of 'official' sources and their cgi/photoshopping crap, so I began uploading my videos to here, but also to YouTube. This is my DiversityJ channel over at YT -- https://www.youtube.com/user/DiversityJ/videos

(sadly, vid.me is closing it's doors as of Dec 15, 2017, so all our content over there will be gone shortly)

Clean, fresh, blue skies to us all! :)
