My latest Images of Jupiter and The Moon

Post by Boomer12k » Fri May 05, 2017 9:47 pm

On Wednesday, the 5th of May, it was PERFECT weather and viewing, and I got my best shot of Jupiter ever, nice and crisp after stacking the images in Registax 6. This is with my Meade 8" Light Switch scope, and it does a great job with The Moon too. The sharp image of Jupiter is through my 2x Barlow lens.

IO is visible in lower right in the first image. The "dusty" areas are camera artifacts from my cheap DSI imager camera. Anything that looks like a "dirty circle". First time I have capture a good shot, with a moon.

The other image is a bit blurred, but not bad on the page.

I hope you like them.
