JUPITER - November 25. 2012 - Ganymede Occult. animation
Poor seeing, processed the cr*p / Rubbish out of the IR images to make the Ganymede occultation a bit interesting,
Warning noisy images !!

Really good showing the disk/detail of Ganymede.
Very 3D.

Was surprised that the frames came out a bit reasonable, seeing was really poor and I overdid the processing a bit...

Now that is really cool. I love the way you can really make out the circular shape of the shadow.

Very nice. I thought the images were very sharp too.

Most people find my images noisy, I guess it must be my monitors, they are smooth, but once I post them they look indeed noisy, still working on that without loosing to much detail, but this set is indeed processed to the max, seeing was not good at all, but after processing I really was surprised about the detail.

Thanks all, nice being here !

Very well done Freddy, its interesting how close to the planet these occultations are happening now. Tuesday night (Wednesday morning 28 Nov at 11:45UT) you have a chance to catch a similar event with Io. A little tougher to see with smallish Io but still worthwhile. Hope you have some good seeing!

It's overcast here now for a few days Glenn, thanks for the heads up... Will check Winjupos.

I've never seen the occultation of Ganymede in animated format; that's a big help in visualizing the location and shape of the edge line that defines Jupiter's shadow. Thanks Freddy!

Just saw it Freddy, the timing really shows the event nicely! (instead of just on-off.) I just looked at that host forum for the first time too, they've got a pretty wide range of planet imagers there!

Regards, Jason H.
