Jupiter – 17 Mar 2016 RGB+IR+CH4

Recommended Posts

Good morning, 

Here are Jupiter and Callisto (+shadow) in a tri-panel arrangement on 17 March 2016. Additional details are shown on the IR image as well as on the methane band filter capture (first light).

Notice the rapid rotation of the planet and movement of Callisto within the relatively short period of time between each image.  Very slight albedo changes on Callisto can be seen.

add even more interesting facts to my evenings viewing.I am not an imager ,and the reason for this is because of posts like this where people do all the work for me!
