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

very poor seeing

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...
