Let's do some different type of Jupiter and Lunar imaging

Recommended Posts

We have Jupiter on the night sky, Moon shows up from time to time as well. Let's try to do some more "exotic" type of imaging of those objects:

* Io/Jupiter sulfur torus and sodium clouds that can be photographed with the help of [S II] DS filter or a custom narrowband filter centered around 589nm for sodium. Io or the whole Jupiter in the field of view recommended, lower resolution than when doing normal imaging
* Lunar petrographic imaging showcasing surface age and composition. Requires 5 wide bandpass filters, mostly in IR
* And as a side note 630 nm "neutral oxygen" filter for some nebulae as well as comets. 589nm sodium filter can also be used for 587 nm He I nebulae emission or with Baader AstroSolar to watch a yellow Sun instead of a green one with Solar Continuum :)

Custom filters can be found in stores like Thorlabs, Edmund Optics but also Chroma that provides astronomical and other filters. Aside of that ebay stores like Bjomejag.
