Spectra of Jupiter

Recommended Posts

I am quite excited - managed to take a spectrum of Jupiter on Saturday night and show the methane absorption bands using my CCDSPEC spectrometer attached to Sky Watcher Equinox Pro 80mm - hand-guided on Manfrotto 116 video tripod!

Details of observing session and other observations/spectra from Saturday can be found at https://roslistonastronomy.uk/spectra-taken-with-ccdspec-on-sky-watcher-equinox-pro-80mm-scope-with-rob-leonard-11-12-5-2019

My spectrum is in red and reference spectrum in blue. Software = RSPEC.
