Jupiter-6-August-2022-GRS.jpg

 

Had very good seeing again. This time I managed to get a respectable shot with the GRS. Included Io as well.

 

I used the 2.7x APM Barlow with the 8" LX90 this morning, but seeing wasn't quite good enough for that level of oversampling. So I ended up reducing the final image size to 70% of the original, which is what it would have been had I used the 2x PowerMate instead.

 

My focus was a tiny bit off, so I had to push sharpening a bit harder than I normally like to. This is my best shot featuring the GRS to date.

Thanks guys. Also, if anyone has any tips for processing out the edge rind at the left side of the planet, I’m all ears. Haven’t figured out a good way to do it yet.

Do you happen to have an exact time (or central meridian angle) for this image?  I can probably match with it exactly one Jupiter rotation later ..
