Jupiter 6th/7th June 2018

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Previously tried Jupiter with EOS1200d but was disappointed with what little detail I could get. Decided to get an ASI290MC and wow, was blown away!

First two images below were with 2x barlow and, by pure luck, include Europa transit and the great red spot. Third image is prime/no barlow with Io to the left.

For comparison, the last image was my first attempt at Jupiter just 2 weeks before. What a difference having the right tools for the job makes!

Equipment: SW 200PDS, HEQ5 Pro, ASI290MC + IR-cut filter.

Process: 90sec vids with Firecapture, PIPP, stacked and debayered with AutoStakkert, wavelets in Registax.

Still loads to learn but very happy with my first attempts. Now to try Saturn....

DSLR'S dont make bad planetary images, it's just that you need to use it paired with a program like BackyardEOS in planetary mode. I used mine to image jupiter and i got good results, and this was also my 2nd ever planetary imaging session with a DSLR, i can expect to get better results with more experience and hopefully better conditions.

      I'm currently on my annual leave in Italy and the sky has been clear all day with no air turbulence.
      The telescope is out - of course - and I managed a session before dinner.
      I thought about sharing some photos taken with my phone and a couple of sketches.

      Jupiter imaged on 17 August 2019 using a C8 SCT, Skyris 618C at f33.

      Hello All,
      Sharing with you my best images of Jupiter and Saturn for this year.
      I haven't had the luck of a High Pressure system with no wind speed yet, but on the 17th it was as close as I had for planetary this Jupiter/Saturn season.
      Not my best images of the gas giants ever but ok IMO.
      I'm happy to see that the GRS seems to be repairing itself, last time I imaged Jupiter, the border around the GRS looked like it was breaking up so perhaps it'll be around long enough for my kids to see in the eyepiece.
      Captured at f33. Images consist of  the best 15% frames from 13x60sec @ 60fps for Jupiter and 13x120s @ 30fps for Saturn, derotated in WinJupos.
      Clear Skies,
      MG

      Hey all, I just started imaging the planets again after a long break. I have just purchased some new equipment a ZWO ASI224MC and skywatcher ADC (replacement for SPC900). I have read a lot about image quality depending on the height of the planets. The image shows top row images I took in Dec 2012 SPC900 ( looks like the world did not end 🙂 ) and bottom row July 2019 224MC. Would the difference I am seeing in quality be down to just position or am I not setting the new camera correctly? Thanks for any more image examples or help.

      Hey all, I cannot believe my luck. I was out on the 31st July practicing imaging Jupiter and Saturn with the my new ADC and ZWO Asi224MC. All of a sudden the ISS started to appear from the South West heading East. I quickly released the clutches on the mount and followed the ISS the best I could with the finder scope. Everything was set in sharp cap for the Jupiter capture, ROI was set to 320 x 240, 2x barlow plus ADC.  I could not believe it out of 6500 frames I manged to find 13 frames, which I stacked. Second bit of luck, PIPP said it could not find an object, so I turned the option off and it ran without errors. The hero was AutoStakkert which sorted the frames to the front of the ser file. 
      Composite of 3 images from my night:
