And still not any higher then 16° in the sky. That’s like, behind the trees and the neighbour’s houses. The seeing for this session was worse then the night before. It does not show on the results.
The first time this season that I could image Jupiter, and an excellent opportunity to apply the skills of the Maksutov again. The seeing was exceptionally good, a very very rare occasion.
These are the images of the planet, diameter 46″ and Altitude 16 degrees.
I was planning to create a terminator mozaic, unfortunately the size of the AVI’s was soo large, I lost some of these due to file copy mismanagement! Oops. So these three pictures emerged (click on them for full-size)
All Lunar images with out Barlow – so native 2700mm focal lenght.
I imaged Jupiter also – way more down to the horizon – with a 2x Barlow, effective focal length 5400mm
Very poor results!
