My best Jupiter. Season is over...

Recommended Posts

Hi friends,

For me, 2019 was a season of many attempts but few good opportunities for planetary imaging here in my city in Brazil.

This Jupiter was the best i got, in a good seeing night. Would like to share with you.

Hi Lucus,

It is a superb image, far better than anything I could even dream of from the UK this year, hence I did very little planetary imaging in 2019.

Best regards, Geof

Thank you very much Geof.

Here I had Jupiter at 88°, almost exactly in Zenith. What was the highest altitude he appeared to you? Maybe between 10 and 20°? It is not a fair comparison. 😂

I'm sure you could have great images If the planet was higher at your sky.

Hi Lucas, this year both Jupiter and Saturn were at max altitude of 16 degrees from my 52N location. I tried a couple of times but gave up ☹️

The is indeed amazing.  i have the same scope and can never get the planet to look so big--even with more multiplication of focal length (Power mates).  Never achieved the detail you have here--very NASAish.

Thank you Rodd

I didnt have too many results like that in 2019, but sometimes things go very well.

We have a powerfull scope. Hope you have your moment too.
