Jupiter 11/12 January 2014


Recommended Posts

Right I finally got to processing the avis only for 3 to really be passable (in the loosest sense of the word!)


It's quite a good indicator of how the seeing improved actually as the night went on. The first two images ar not great at all and were shot at around 10ish and the final one which is better, but still not great was during a period of better seeing at just gone midnight. All images were 3000 frames put through PIPP and then stacked in AS!2 and wavelets in registax 5.1 and unsharp mask in PSCS2.


EDIT: Hmm really should have noticed the blue hue on the first two and sorted it-oh well! :)


Scope: 200P Mount:NEQ6 Televue 2x powermate with 3 inch extension on top of that

Thanks guys. I only posted the first two to show what a difference it makes when you get those moments of better seeing.

The last one is a cracker.

As said the seeing/atmospherics change from moment to moment.

Thank you for the kind words, it does help motivate me to go back out when it's minus temps :)
