SGL Imaging Challenge #2 - Jupiter

18 posts in this topic

The theme for the second Challenge - April 2017 - is Jupiter!

Start Date: 1st April 2017
End Date: 30th June 2017

Any image that fits the theme ‘Jupiter’ will be accepted. We are not looking for anything specific. It might be an artistic single frame, a ‘lucky shot’ or a highly planned, multi-night epic! The winning image will be whichever one the judges like best!

Prize: A ZWO Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector (ADC) which significantly reduces the prismatic smearing (atmospheric dispersion) caused by light passing through moisture in our atmosphere, a common problem encountered when observing/imaging planets at low altitudes. Kindly provided by our sponsors FLO :) and a virtual trophy for your signature.

We are a little late launching this but will accept images you may have already taken of Jupiter since 1st April.

Can you post a sketch or does it have to be a photographic image?

I have a sketch from last night that I'm relatively happy with.

This is one of my first images of Jupiter, and an overall first attempt at astrophotograhy.  I believe that is Io's shadow being cast in the northern hemisphere of the planet (up is south and down is north).  I used the following equipment to create my image:

Celestron Edge HD 11" SCT

Baader Click-Lock Star Diagonal & Visual Back

Canon T5i DSLR (Gary Honis Full-Spectrum Modification)

Best of 700 images - Stacked in Registax / Wavelet Filter Applied

 

My image was taken on June 10, 2017  If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know.  I am eager to improve my skills, in this exciting and rewarding hobby! 

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Larry

This image was captured using my TMB 6" apo with an APM 2.7x barlow.  Altair Astro IMX174 HyperCam and Baader LRGB filters. About 2500 frames captured withh FireCapture and then sharpened with Registax and PS. 

Perhaps a little oversharpened but the presence of the emerging (and flattened) red spot enhances the impression of 3D.  Also two satellites present, Io to the left and possibly Europa to lower right.
