    I'm a learning amateur astonomer. I hardly know anything in the sky. Lately, I have been looking up and seeing the three get closer and just happened to hear that it will be the closest yesterday (Dec 1).

    Oh. Okay ... I'll add to this thread what I did in the general DSLR thread

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    hehe

    I should also add mine were with the Tamron 70-200/2.8

    At mostly 70mm and one at 200mm.

    Don, was that from tonight? I'm lucky, it's pretty cloudy/hazy out tonight.

    Yepper ... around 6PM CST ... then the clouds got me. I really was anxious to try out the telescope idea ... but, Jupiter just disappeared. Last time I spotted Jupiter, last year, I think ... it was nearly using the telescope straight up. I had to use the right-angle adapter on it. It was a pretty amazing view, very clear (less atmosphere, when looking straight up) for such a little scope.

    I opted for the TAMRON SP AF 200-500mm f/5-6.3 Di LD instead of this. Decisions have to be made ... LOL
