A raft of Jupiters

Recommended Posts

Don't do much these days and given the overall conditions I tend to experience it's not surprising. My attempts on previous occasions were indifferent to put it mildly and I had almost given up.

However, to show that you should never give up I had the first reasonable night two nights ago for what seems like ages. I spent quite a bit of time on Jupiter and the images below are just some that I managed.

Did a bit of tinkering with them in both Registax and PS to see what I would get. They are from a period of about two hours or so.

I should have said what I use. Taken with an Orion Optics F4.8 250mm reflector with a 4x Imagemate Barlow and an ancient ATIK colour

camera and ATIK IR filter.

Used WX Capture to grab the video at 15fps, before putting the result through Registax and PS. In some cases, I got some moons as well,

but I may have cropped them out. Stuck a selection in Powerpoint to get the composite image I attached.
