Quick Jupiter from last night

Recommended Posts

Have barely started processing the data from last nice yet, but I was particularly pleased to catch this one as it's both the first time I've seen a moon during transit of Jupiter and the first time I've imaged it. I'm not expecting great things from the data, I have to say. Despite the clear sky there was a lot of gusting wind and the seeing was not just pants but vest and socks as well.

127 Mak and SPC900 with 2.5x barlow and extension, just under 900 frames stacked of 1800 captured using Registax v6.

NIce one James... :)

I wasn't even aware of the transit 'til I was getting set up. I looked through an eyepiece while aligning my finder, and thought, "Wow! Transit! ...must hurry..." :D

I didn't know either. When I was getting focus I almost threw a strop because I thought I'd got a dust bunny bang in the middle of the sensor having only just spent several hours getting it beautifully clean :)
