Second Jupiter of this season

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.

Jupiter on June 2nd, 2.30 MEST / Maksutov 180mm F15, ASI290MM Baader RGB

Lunar landscapes & a poor Jupiter display

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)

Mare Humorum: look at these fine rilles, and the big crater Gassendi

Main craters on this southern landscape are: Schiller Clavius and Longomontanus

Sinus Iridum and crater Plato on the northern rim of our Moon

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!

Jupiter on 25-26 May 2018 in poor seeing.
