This morning I managed to get out of bed after only 2 hours of sleep to start imaging on Jupiter. When I saw Jupiter in the south-eastern sky through the trees, I just had to drag myself outside, and set up my equipment.
This time I tried something new; instead of my usual Ir-RGB method (using a color wecbam for RGB, and the b/w webcam for Ir), I wanted to only use my b/w webcam to get a color image.
Now there was only one problem; I don't have proper R,G,B filters, so I had to improvise a little.
For the red channel I used an astronomik planet pro Ir-pass filter (>742nm). For green a W21 orange filter, and for blue a W47 blue filter.
The b/w Toucam Pro II webcam was used on my 10" Starfinder telescope (with a 2x barlow) to get the images.
Io can be seen on the far left, and the GRS is starting to appear from the upper right.
Jupiter was at 19 degrees altitude when I shot this image. This year, it's maximum altitude at my location will be about 22 degrees.
