Annoying :sad: [/quote] Here are official terms of service "thou shall nots." I don't see "astronomy" or "non-video game video" listed... [b] Prohibited Conduct.

[/b] Here's their catch-all clause to fuck you over for any reason or no reason at all, which is no doubt what they would rely on if I made this into a civil suit: [b] Termination; Terms of Service Violations. Twitch. You agree that Twitch, in its sole discretion, [i]for any or no reason,[/i] and without penalty, may terminate any account (or any part thereof) you may have with Twitch or your use of the Twitch Service and remove and discard all or any part of your account, User profile, and any Broadcaster Content, at any time. [/b] Fuck 'em. I'm done with non-astronomy streaming services, period. I'm sure they all have a similar catch-all clause and I'm 2 for 2 on being banned. NSN is simple, 4 rules, and they understand amateur astronomy. The hardest is going to be the no foul language rule; I'm responsible for the behavior of you all in chat. I know I'm going to have to heavily police it. [/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:
