callisto about to transit


Recommended Posts

Unfortunately really poor seeing where I am. Jupiter boiling even at 90x and Mars even worse. Have just seen something shoot past Jupiter quickly though which was nice. Am going to have a think about what to look at next but it won't be a planet.

That'll be the Moon then, same terrible seeing here, not sure if it was Mars or someone juggling an orange :)

Good looking image With the transit clearly visible.  My window is still half an hour away!

I viewed it visually. Very tough to pick out that little black dot.

I was using a 4.7 mm eyepiece in a Heritage newt.

The dot whizzed a cross the disk. Not a long eclipse for those on Jupiter!

      This planetary grouping from 20th March around 5.30am shows Saturn to the left with conjunction of Jupiter above & Mars below, sharp eyed may also see...  Io, Ganymede & Callisto in a string just right of Jupiter.
      Image taken from Lesmahagow, South Lanarkshire looking toward the SE.

      Not bad, all things considered. A few days later, I acquired a Celestron Solar Sustem Imager camera.

      Callisto 1.5.17,  22.59. Cropped from a 480x480 AVI of Jupiter and processed on its own as an AVI, this way means it will be stacked on the moon and not the planet= no trail . I used Vdub to crop the AVI and enlarge then put it though PIPP to center, AS!2 to stack and Registax for sharpening & wavelets. 10" dob x3 barlow, asi 120 mcs camera hand tracked.
