Slooh is running a live cam in the Canary Islands to check for if the impact left a scar of the sorts. http://events.slooh.com/

Really cool an Amateur Astronomer got the footage, and on an LX200 12"! Must have been a massive collision.

Anyone else an AA? I have a Meade LX800 that I used to run lapses on Saturn and The Orion Nebula through my laptop on crystal clear winter nights. Light pollution from downtown has made that less exciting, but I will go up to the mountains once every couple months and do that now.

Also, interested to find out what mods/filters/eyepieces he used to capture it.

My condolences to all the Jupitereans who have suffered from the disaster.

Got a cousin in Charlotte who, not sure if he still is, was the main dude for Meck County Astronomers. Dude travels the world just for eclipses and showers etc.
