    Last night tried to photograph Jupiter with meade etx125 and nikon d300 with 12.4 eyepiece and could only see a white blob with four moons. Any idea why Jupiter wasn't clear? Thanks

    Check your exposure settings on your DSLR. You will probably lose the moons if you stop down too much, but it sounds like your camera is letting in too much light. Experiment with your camera settings and focus settings on your scope.
