    Io shadow 2

    From the album: Jupiter

    Latest try at Jupiter, with GRS and Io's shadow., It MAY be that a slightly bright patch to the right of the GRS is Io or I may be fooling myself...
  3. Hi all. Sharing my capture of Jupiter from 19 April 2017. The video comprises frames from 1622UT to 1718UT and shows the GRS traversing the planet. Video can be viewed at either the youtube or attachment link below. https://youtu.be/8M7d3m34c5I 2017-04-19-1622_1-RGB_pipp_x264.mp4 Equipment used: Celestron C8, QHY5L-II-C, GSOx2.5barlow
  4. Although it was quite hazy, I decided to get the telescope set up and then try to do some observing of Jupiter. I've always managed to time things poorly before and previously missed out on seeing the GRS. Anyway, half past eight, or there abouts, the GRS was meant to be mid-transit so I took my chance. Polar aligning the mount was a little tricky as Polaris was almost lost in the haze. I couldn't see it naked eye but it popped into view through the polar scope. After some tweaking on the EQ5's suspect bendy bolts I lined up on Jupiter and had a view at 200x (with my 5 mm ep). The haze helped a bit as this helped to calm down the brightness somewhat. The seeing was great and all four visible moons resolved as steady discs. The GRS was clearly visible, nicely salmon pink in colour, and delineated by a thin white band against the main band it nestles in. This main band had a number of white features within it appearing to trail behind the GRS. It was the best view of Jupiter I've had and it was certainly worth the wait - all two years since I got the telescope (which has spent most of its time pointing at faint DSOs).
  5. Hello! Last night i had my first succesful planetary imaging session with my new scope and my DSLR. I used BackyardEOS with the crop mode at f/10, the results where very satisfying, miles better than anything i had done before. Maybe i could have added a 2x barlow but i am not sure if atmospheric conditions would have allowed for that. So...here are the results, please give me your feedback, Clear Skies!
  6. Hi all, Thought we would share our image of Jupiter from the 6/4/15 ... this is the first time we have seen the Red Spot. We had spent ages trying to get pics with a Canon and tried the QHY5 camera we purchased as a guide scope to video it instead and then stacked the frames. It worked a treat ... still can't believe we got a pic of it after all this time!
  7. After one or two failled attempts I finally managed to image Jupiter plus its Great Red Spot, Ganymede and its shadow. Taken using an unmodded Toucam and an IR blocking filter attatched to a 200 mm Skywatcher Explorer with a 3x barlow and 1227 images stacked. I had the added problem of Jupiter going behind the trees during imaging, where I am there's trees everywhere and I only had a small area to place my telescope, I just can't avoid them so I was having to deal with an image that was darkening then brightening for most of the time, but one good thing about winter is all the leaves have fallen so I can see through the trees. Also I couldn't see the northern sky so it was just a case of pointing the mount what I reckoned was north, so constantly having to press the direction button to keep the image in the centre of the field

  9. Hi All, After high cloud passed through the seeing was fairly respectable. A lovely view of Jupiter, with the Great Red Spot on disc. Europa was just off planet with its shadow transiting near the GRS. Best regards, Pete Lawrence

  12. Amazing coincidental transits of the Great Red Spot AND Ganymede on Jupiter shot using my Orion Deep Space Video Camera II and my Orion SkyView Pro 180mm Mak around midnight last night (April 22). Ganymede can be seen casting a shadow along the northern limb. The GRS can be seen roughly near the center of the planet. "Intrapsychic Conflict" is introduced as the musical landscape, not unconscious turmoil, lol! Enjoy! Reggie
