Jupiter from BMVO
Gary Trapuzzano

Two weeks ago I met Al Lamperti and Joe Lamb at BMVO for a night out under clear, transparent skies. I used my old but trusty Celestron C9.25 with a Televue 2x Powermate to image Jupiter and was pleased by the results.

Camera: ZWO ASI485MC (One-Shot Color)

OTA: Celestron C9.25 with Televue 2x Powermate (F.L. ~4,700mm)

Mount: iOptron CEM40

Filter: IR Block

Integration: Twenty one, 1 min sequences (~78 fps)

SW: FireCapture, AutoStakkert, RegiStax, WinJUPOS, PS CS5.1

Clear skies,


Lou Varvarezis

Nice detail Gary, did you use an ADC to collect the data?

Thanks Lou.  I did use a ZWO ADC for this image but am still in the early stage of learning how to use it so I'm hoping for better results with future efforts.
