Jupiter with Io and Europa
40 cm Dobson made by Rik ter Horst
Jupiter under fair seeing conditions. Imaged with the ASI120MM camera at F/30 (resized to 66.7% though)
I was just playing around with different processing methods, always fun to try out new processing approaches. In total I spent about 4-5 hours processing this image, but that doesn't mean you can actually tell that ;).
Attached is Jupiter on November 19, at 00:01 RGB (I derotated two stacks in WinJupos and combined them). Interesting to see the small cyclonic dark spot division next to oval BA).
Imaged with the 10" Meade Starfinder and ASI120MM cmos camera (I will add this camera to the equipment list soon)
I also made an animation showing Jupiter in blue light:
And finally a remake of the image I made in Oct 2013.
Imaged together with Rik ter Horst and his 16" Dobson telescope. Tbe seeing was pretty good. More results will follow.
Jupiter in the twilight with the 10" meade.
Processed using AutoStakkert!2, WinJupos and Photoshop.
Captured during a brief moment of good seeing. I mixed in quite a bit of IR to get some finer details.

Io is hovering just in front of the GRS.
And another image in Ir-R-G light (23:54UT combined using WinJupos, colors enhanced a bit):
I recorded these images together with Rik ter Horst using his home made 40cm dobson telescope in the far North of the Netherlands. We were very lucky to have good seeing.
The transparancy was very poor though, making the processing a bit of a challenge.
And another image made half an hour later at 00:32UT on October 2:
And finally a small animation showing Jupiter in red light (recorded at 23:47, 23:54 and 23:57):
Seeing was excellent that night. There are plenty of recordings left to process, so perhaps I can make another animation.
