Recommended Posts

Morning Folks,

Decided to get up before the birds this morning and have a go at Jupiter, not great but pleased and shattered might go back to bed now.

Nice image Trudie, it's a shame that Jupiter isn't going to be very high in the sky this year. I always enjoy having a look at Jupiter.

Jupiter is always worth getting up early/staying up late for! You've captured some nice detail Trudie, well done!

Thats a cracker! Bet you are chuffed with it :D

I saw Jupiter one morning about 6 weeks or so ago but could not see any detail on it. Might have to get the webcam on it now I have seen that image.

Thanks all,

I must admit it was worth getting up at 3am for, but am feeling the effects now !

Detail through the scope was much better than captured but that is probably down to my focussing and processing technique, will have another go later.

1 question is it better to capture as many frames as poss, that one was 90seconds @ 5fps?

This one is 30 seconds @5fps

Regards

Trudie

I love it Trudie. :D

I noticed Jupiter peaking through a gap in some trees from my back garden this morning at 05:30 as I left for work. I am tempted to try for an image myself as I have the next few days off work.

I'd be well chuffed if I could get anything nearly as good as yours. :D

Not sure about the 04:30 though, I have enough trouble getting up at 06:30 for work!! :D

Thats a cracking picture esp. considering how low the planet is this year. :D

The more frames the better, but Jupiter will show rotation after around 3 minutes (depending on your imaging setup) so keep it below that.

Congrats on the pic.

Jupiter is a very difficult target this year and you have some great detail in there.

Cheers

Splendid result there Trudie. That is going to please you very much, considering old Jupta is not best placed for imaging.

Well done, you have set the mark that's for sure.

ron. :D
