Jupiter and Ganymede 2012/11/21
      #5533350 - 11/22/12 03:57 AM

After a week of cloudy weather I got a few hours of clear sky. I only processed two LRGB sets from about 12 so this might not be the best data.

Meade LX200R 10", barlow 2x, ADC and the IDS UEye Ruby camera. With the ADC the focal/diameter ratio goes up to FD32.5



Without the ADC the F/D stays at FD28, and details pop out better.

Nice work Flavius! Have not tried multiple RGB combines in WinJupos, but it looks like you got it down pretty good!

Nice results Flavius - the compiled images really strengthened the albedo features on Ganymede..!

Great results on that. I'm always amazed when any amount of detail on a moon is visible. Not to mention the amazing detail on Jupiter itself.

Thank you again !

Here is the last processing from the 21th of november. It is made with Winjupos derotation using 4 consecutive LRGB sets, 80s per channel. It makes about 21 minutes of film overall.
The difference is not big but you get more detail compared to a single LRGB.

Extremely impressive results for 10" aperture. Makes me think a mono cam may be in my future. Congratulations!
