Jupiter, Io and Callisto


Jim Thurston

SE London

Celestron 9.25″ SCT on EQ6, DMK21 mono camera with RGB filters. 2 minutes per channel, stacked with Autostakkert and de-rotated in Winjupos. Separate exposures for the moons were taken to bring out what detail I could.

Jupiter and two of its moons during a rare (and brief) spell of not-too-appalling seeing. Sadly the weather failed before the Great Red Spot came into view, but I’m happy to get something resembling a family portrait instead!
