Interesting. Hope you find an alternate site to stream it - there's gotta be others [/quote] This is the second time one of these fucking webcast sites banned me because they weren't expecting astronomy video. I could use night skies network, but there is no way for me to record the broadcast if I do that so I never do it for things like this that I want people to be able to refer to later. Google hangouts is another option I guess, but my computer is too old to run it. [/quote] Mabie you are getting to close to the truth and what you are showing has something we are not supposed to see? [/quote] More likely one of the zetatards made a complaint that it wasn't appropriate content and then the mod saw it and decided he agreed. I've done this on Justin.tv/twitch for a long time now with my scope, including Jupiter, and they just NOW noticed? This is the first time I've done a justin.tv broadcast in direct response to a zetatard claim. That's probably the common theme here, retribution after recently attacking the zetatards directly. [/quote] Ding...Ding...Ding! We have a winner. [/quote]
Well it seems the ZetaTalk cult is now claiming that Jupiter has "tilted."

This stems from this youtube video where the person used pictures from Stellarium that show Jupiter under the influence of field rotation (though he also seems to think this shows it "tilting" in a physical sense):

At 1:22 in the video you can clearly see Stellarium's interface, and the little telescope shaped button is not lit up, indicating that he is viewing the sky from an altitude-azimuth perspective and is subject to field rotation. Alt-az is the way most people view the sky day to day, so it's the stellarium default. You must observe from a polar aligned perspective, however, if you want to eliminate field rotation and see the true orientation. I'm going to do a 2 part broadcast tonight to show Jupiter both from an altitude-azimuth perspective, and later from a polar aligned perspective.
This first part will be done with my cell phone webcasting it so that I can show you both the video screen and the telescope itself so that you can see the camera is oriented normally in the scope. Then I'll switch over to broadcasting with the laptop to show just what the telescope sees directly. Later on I'll switch the telescope to a polar aligned perspective and then show what that looks like.
For this first part, notice that Jupiter's cloud bands appear tilted as it rises in the east. The great red spot is visible near the center of the planet. For the sake of simplicity, I've also set the camera to invert the image to compensate for the way the telescope normally produces an inverted image in this configuration. Here's the webcast:
