Jupiter from Arizona - 20 Nov 2012

Seeing was variable with considerable morphing. Fairly difficult focussing this night. The color balance was very difficult. Think the exposure was too high in the red channel and the EQ tended to burn out - its very bright here on the border with the SEB. I'll work on levels and a different sharpening process before I send this one to various interested parties.

The GRS has rotated out of view, but the belts are presenting interesting details. The red spot in the north seems to be intensifying. It was a good focal point in the blue channel.

Captured with a Flea3 using FireCapture 2.1. This is a 1X, south up view, RGB combined in WinJupos.

Comments or questions welcome. Thanks for looking!

Glenn

Very impressive result for the described conditions Glenn.

Not that I have done much imaging of Jup this apparition, but I have noticed that as it gets closer to opposition I have had to reduce gain for each session to maintain my preferred histo setting for each channel. This has probably been more apparent for me due to the rather long gaps between my imaging sessions for Jup.

Regards
Trevor

Very nice, Glenn. The polar regions look especially good.

Given the conditions I was happy to get this certainly. A testimony to the software at our dispoal these days. Thanks Torsten and Emil!
