Jupiter Jan 10th 2014

Recommended Posts

This is an image of Jupiter and 4 moons, that I took through my mak127 with almost perfect seeing.

The image is 1/10sec at ISO400 and some photoshop processing.

Jupiter is a great object right now, good elevation and bright enough for short exposures (maybe too bright) as I don't (or didn't) have a motorised mount.

...from the Canon 550d..?

Worth trying a shorter exposure and shooting a burst to stack - as well as one around this exposure time to get the moons,,,Jupiter itself is a tad over-exposed at that exposure setting but this is still a nice effort with this difficult method! :)

Yeah it was about as good as you are going to get out of a single image!
