    Some planetary observations from 5/11 and 5/12.  Fairly nice skies for viewing the brightest objects.  Jupiter was imaged about 30 minutes following the double moon shadow transit, with IO's shadow still visible as was the Red Spot.  Saturn was imaged this am at about 4:30 am and Venus around 5:30 am.  All are short 20-30 ms (?) exposures with the Orion 5MP camera.  Still quite a bit of atmospheric distortion present but who can complain about the weather in the last 2 days!
