[/quote] Honestly I'm fed up. I'm done with these regular webcasting/streaming sites that don't understand or specialize in astronomy, period. I can be targeted on any one of them by a zetatard who reports my content as "inappropriate" or a "copyright violation" and they'll shut me down and ask questions later if I'm lucky. From now on it's night skies network or bust. There's no recording function which is why I've avoided it for things like this (plus the regulars there will not be too happy about a bunch of GLP'ers showing up), but I'll point my desktop at the site and record it separately. http://www.nightskiesnetwork.com/ [/quote] As I said space is a very touchy subject. Im about to come into a fair bit of money and am looking foward to buying a good telescope :) Why dont you make a youtube account? [/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:
