Walking on the Moon

Jupiter 25th & 26th 4/16


Recommended Posts

Jupiter on the night of the 25th followed by a daylight observation on the evening of the 26th, and again an hour later against a dark sky. Despite the daylight observations low contrast, Jupiter was situated in a sweet spot of steady air which aided in detecting the finer detail. Both the night time observations were in more turbulent air and so definition was limited somewhat. The focus of the telescope was regularly fine tuned throughout the observations and Jupiter's disc was moved slowly across the field, which helped reveal detail more easily rather than leaving it in the centre of the field.
