As stated fine seeing has continued down here with very light winds and clear skies. Here Europa was carefully stacked in Photoshop (very tedious) but has to be done. A lot of activity it seems around the GRS.

Nice job on Europa!  Maybe its because it is sunny side up, but the face of your Jupiter looks a bit startling.

Interesting display of colors around the GRS.  BQ has made us all pay attention to recent odd colors on Jupiter and with you, him D Mach and others putting up some fascinating images its an exciting time to watch.

Hi yes Jupiter looks a bit startled, this is very large image scale, when reduced for CN becomes extra sharp. Here is the other way up, looks like the flake is been pushed upwards.

Good Lord, Luke…I daresay yours are becoming the reference images for July!

 

Any chance you captured this shot in RGB? I'm trying to pinpoint exactly when that blue streak appeared. Paul Maxson's RGB shot from one rotation before gives a hint of it…

Luke, really nice detail around the GRS.  I have been struggling with cloud here, glad you are getting some clear skies.  Cheers Brett

No doubt there are some nice details there Luke waytogo.gif but I struggle to accept iR-rgb images per se. Good seeing should elicit good rgb ("natural colour") images without resort to ir etc...I'd encourage you to post the rgb's also if they are worthwhile...it's too easy to get the "rookies" to "ooh" & "aah" at false colour images! lol.gif

 

"Struggle" is perhaps another euphemism for "startled" but of course it is entirely your choice what you do with any images! smile.gif

 

Hopefully you don't take offence & I accept this is my own point of view. wink.gif

Hi Darryl I always value your comments, it would take a lot to offend me cool.gif . At the moment in the "IR mood" but soon will go back to normal. I used IR G B rather than IR R G B which can make it bit heavier..

Never my intention to offend you Luke! :)

 

Remember, if the seeing really is "good" then there's no need to replace r with iR...actually, you are doing yourself a dis-service in such situations because the resolution in r is better, regardless of colouration!
