Jupiter 23 July 2021

Recommended Posts


Last time I tried capturing Jupiter, my polar allignment was off and I really struggled - a pity, because seeing had been excellent that night. Last night, I got up half an hour earlier and spent time making sure my PA was accurate. As it turns out, it was just as well as a bank of cloud was approaching and I realised this would only give me half an hour imaging time. Seeing was poor - I had a 2x Barlow and I could see Jupiter's image shimmering like it was under water.

I started imaging: because the PA was good this time, I was able to capture 11,000 stable images in two minutes - this is much more than last time. I'm happy with my resulting image - it doesn't hold a candle to some of the brilliant images of Jupiter already uploaded this year but it's definite progress for me.🙂
