Occultation of Jupiter
      #5638916 - 01/23/13 01:11 PM

Hi All,

I'm lucky to live in the path of the Occultation for January 21-22. The Seeing was very bad and clouds were present but it was a lot of fun and a great show seeing Jupiter disappear in the Moon's dark limb.

Here are some photos I took:

Best,
Luis

Thank you!
The Moon was very low for the occultation (about 10 degrees) so I have a lot of atmospheric dispersion in my photos. An ADC would have helped but I don't have one.

Sorry I knew I was forgetting something.

I used a Mak-Cass 5'' (1500mm) I added a 4x barlow for the occultation closeups. The camera was a 60Da.
