Jupiter & Io from Arizona - 6 Nov 2012 new
      #5507544 - 11/06/12 09:07 PM Attachment (47 downloads)

Io was transiting Jupiter again this morning. This moon really moves fast, since my images of Io on 30 October it has gone around Jupiter four times! The NEB is very interesting, a fair amount of turbulence noticeable.

Seeing was problematic, mostly average with occasional shockingly bad moments. The focus was all over the place. For a brief period of 20 minutes the seeing settled down between 1:30 and 2am local time. The seeing was above average (6/10) for this image shown in a north up view at 1X.

Captured with a Flea3 using FireCapture 2.1.

Comments or questions welcome. Thanks for looking!

Glenn

Glenn,

Very excellent image. My seeing was about the same as yours. Maybe tomorrow morning will be better as we wait for a weekend storm.

Great results, Glenn. Seeing down here was sporadic. I had to stop imaging about 1am because I'm working today. Seeing did not improve until about midnight. So, I was collecting AVIs like a madman for about an hour. Missed the transit...too early. But, you captured it very nicely. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent job Glenn! I started imaging around 1:30 am seeing started out decent but went downhill quickly, Focusing became a guessing game.Could not get a decent RGB sequence at all. Glad you had such great results!
