Jupiter

Jupiter under pretty good seeing conditions with the 16" Dob.

Stacked with AutoStakkert!2, and derotated several stacks in Winjupos. Post-processing in Photoshop.

Edit: new image a couple hours later when the seeing went down a little bit:


I also made two animations in infrared light showing the GRS (during rather poor seeing)


And oval BA:


There are still some images left to process, and I might just be able to make a VERY long animation of about 5 hours of data. Although I'm afraid this will take some time since the recordings show Jupiter at different scales and orientations...

Jupiter under fair seeing conditions. Imaged with the ASI120MM camera at F/30 (resized to 66.7% though)

Jupiter

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.

Jupiter and Europa

Imaged together with Rik ter Horst and his 16" Dobson telescope. Tbe seeing was pretty good. More results will follow.

Jupiter

Captured during a brief moment of good seeing. I mixed in quite a bit of IR to get some finer details.

Stacked using AutoStakkert!2, processed in WinJupos and Photoshop.

Jupiter and Io

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):
