This is important! If you don't supply ALL information, we won't be able to use your photograph!!!!

C11 with the ToUcam, images processed in RegiStax3 and PixInsight (images were reduced in size considerably due to poor conditions), animations created using K3CCD Tools 2 and Advanced GIF Animator.

Takes about 30 seconds or so for the frames to download before the animation starts.

Jupiter on a less-than-ideal night

May 3rd, 2005 10:30pm JST
C11 + 3x barlow, ToUcam Pro 840, 900 frames stacked.
Seeing was pretty unstable, blurring the silhouette of Ganymede against the planet so Ganymede was covered over in the post processing in this image.
