Jupiter GRS and IO Moon 27.6.10

Recommended Posts

1st time i have viewed and imaged GRS on Jupiter, so i'm well chuffed :D, was great seeing GRS on laptop screen too,

need to redo these in next few days but heres quick process of couple avi's i've been messing about with today,

much more detail showing than my last effort, just need to get my processing sorted

was very gusty last night so found it hard to get lots of frames

seeing and conditions at best 7/10 more like 6/10

1st pic is just 250/400 stack time was 3.45am alt about 20degrees

2nd and 3rd pics are 450/600 stack time was 4.15am alt about 24degrees

u can see how much the GRS has moved in 30mins

think might have got Junior aswell but need to reprocess to bring it out better

Used 127mm Mak with x2 Barlow @f/23.6

K3CCD for capture @ 10fps,

reg 5 for stacking and Gimp for colour tweak

2nd and 3rd pick should just show IO moon of to left of Jupiter,

need to reprocess these 2

comments advice appreciated

many thx for all comments guys

Very nice images you got there especially like the last 1 , did you use the neo filter on the camera ?

thx, just UV/IR filter was used with these pics

i did try using with Neo filter aswell but it dimmed the image a bit too much

(another reason for bigger aperture lol)

Lovely images good colour and detail, have yet to see the GRS through my scope. The Mak 127 is a great little scope altho just swapped mine for the Celestron 80ED.

Welldone keep up the good work
