Jupiter

Jupiter under pretty good seeing conditions.

Lots of derotation of image stacks in WinJupos (and manual recombination of the best parts in Photoshop). It's nice to have good S/N to work with.

Jupiter

Reasonable seeing for Jupiter.

And an anmiation in CH4 light using the ZWO CH4 filter. Unfortunately the seeing was much worse when I made recordings in CH4...

The little bright dot on the right is Europa.

Jupiter

Jupiter, with Europa and Io. Last time I had some troubles with the standard USB3 cable, but I replaced it with a high quality USB3 cable of 5m, and this seems to work very well!

Jupiter and Io

Jupiter and Io under pretty good seeing conditions!

Lots of work to combine a couple of data sets without destroying the shadow...

I also processed a recording of Ganymede I made this same evening, along with a simulated view using the JPL Solar System Simulator

Jupiter

Hurray for good seeing!

There should be some more data sets here that were pretty good, but this RGB set was definitely one of the best of the evening. Transparancy was rather poor with high altitude clouds.

Jupiter

Oval BA is nicely visible here. I combined several datasets to get this image using WinJupos and some work in photoshop.

Jupiter

Imaged during 'ok' seeing conditions (6-7/10), but my best image this opposition, and actually imaged just 7 hours after opposition!

Jupiter

Very cool double transit of Io and Europa! Io is the pinkish dot (with darker poles) near the center of Jupiter (the shadow of Io to the left). Europa is at the right of Jupiter (shadow near the edge). Notice that the shadow of Europa is fuzier than the one of Io!

5/10 seeing .. or something like that
