Jupiter 25/5/19

Folks,

First time I'd been ready for half decent seeing this season, after months of cloud and turbulence.

This shot was taken with my Edge HD 11" shortly before midnight.

I've tried to get the colours as close to eye-view as possible, although they're maybe a little more bold

Cheers,
Dunk

Good image Dunk,
Looks like you had slightly better seeing conditions at your location.

Thanks Troy! Yeah it was a bit random, as it was only clear for about an hour before the clouds rolled back in

Thanks for the kind words, Bob

I got some data the following night too, of the "backside", but haven't had a chance to go through it all yet.

Very nice I've been struggling with seeing here the few nights I've been out

That's a top image of Jupiter, really like it. Trying to replicate the colour balance to how it appears to the eye is tricky while also getting the colours to pop out a bit more boldly.
Enjoying seeing everyones images of the planet now that it is in season and the Red Spot is providing some changes.

Thanks Mark, Jeff

The seeing is fickle. It's a beautiful clear day again here but the seeing last night was shocking what with that southerly nudging us

Thatís a fantastic image Dunk. A benchmark shot.
Iím forever trying to get a reasonable image of Jupiter - seems to me to be a difficult challenge to master. How long would a standard video grab take without introducing too much blur from the planet rotation- 1 min or less?
As I only ever use eye piece projection and video crop with my canon dslr and 10Ē newt the image is at a reasonable size but blurry to say the least. I guess winjupos is important to achieve the best result iím tipping. Never been able to fully understand it but keen to learn.

Cheers
Anth

Thanks Anthony

Iíve revisited it a little as I think my shot above is a bit heavy on the red

The real maker or breaker is the seeing, oh and good collimation and focus are essential. If you nail the latter, then itís likely rough seeing.

Your sequence length will depend on focal length of the scope and pixel size of the camera, which together will determine how much error you will see, and thus determine how long your sequences could be without noticing the rotation.

This image was taken at about 4500mm with a camera with 2.9um pixels, so to be on the safe side I was capturing 30 seconds at a time.

WinJupos isnít the be all...if you put blurry data in, youíll get blurry data out. If youíll excuse the pun, focus on getting good results from a single stack first. Of course, capture loads of sequences in an evening in the hope that one or more are decent...thatís why they call it lucky imaging

Um, what happened to the moons ?

As I recall from watching their little disks intently, Ganymede was pretty close most of the evening, and Io had just about completed a transit before midnight...

Io was nearby but outside of the FOV of the camera at the time the shot was taken.
