Jupiter 10 /11 Nov.

Hi All

Am a bit reluctant to post these , as the quality is not as good as I expected, especially compared to other recent offerings, but "we" are not in a contest I suppose (hope) . The processing was variable though I was using the same settings, or so I thought.
Taken last Friday evening, Saturday morning, in what I thought was reasonable seeing apart from an 2 hour or so period when a warm northerly wind change came through and the seeing turned to mush. Thankfully it improved a little as the Red Spot rotated into view later.

Equipment - 127mm Triplet, EQ6, 290MC . Best ! 2,000 / 10,000 frames, debayered and aligned in PIPP, Autostakkert and Registax.

Thanks for looking and feel free to criticize ( critique ).

"...the quality is not as good as expected..." I dunno, I think I'd be pretty happy with a result like this. Nice work.

Thanks Warren, most appreciated. As a follow up I imaged Jupiter on the 13th, Monday, in better seeing, maybe 7/10, from Wagga Wagga, managed to get a better result. The limitation is obviously the lack of aperture but I was travelling and couldn't take every scope with me.
What the images help to highlight is how much Jupiter rotates in just 15 / 20 minutes.
Best 25% of 15000 frames, the same gear as before.

Mate those are nice shots! Well done in some difficult conditions, and I can tell you Iíve had a few sessions with my c14 this year that have not been able to produce any better detail than youíve got here. One of my favourite aspects of observing Jupiter is its fast rotation. Obviously this allows for some cool animations etc but even through the eyepiece Iíve sometimes spent a couple hours just watching her move and the moons as well- it never ceases to amaze me! Thanks for sharing your work!!

Thanks for the comments Bob and Dave, it is always of interest to see what smaller apertures can capture and frankly the seeing around my neck of the woods hardly warrants the viability of larger scopes most of the time.
