My last Jupiter 25-03


Recommended Posts

Jupiter is getting very faint (gain on max) and my imaging window shorter and shorter.

Forecast is not good for the next few days so this will probably be my last Jup image this season.

Thanks for looking

Very nice capture of the transit and excellent surface detail - talk about ending on a high note. Certainly no excess noise from max gain.

Jupiter was noticeably dimmer last night and I was using 30% longer exposures down this way - I thought this was transparency dipping as fewer visible stars.

Many thanks for all your kind comments.

I acquired a few avi's of the Io transit but this last one was by far the best. The seeing got quite steady just before I had to pack up as Jupiter got lost over some trees..

Superb capture Martin. Great detail and the moon transit is the icing on the cake!
