jupiter image 19th March 2003 - lucky shot.

Dear everyone,

Here's the jupiter image from this evening 19th March 2003.

For this image, I had to fight not against the seeing but against the
clouds. It was clear the whole day and while I was setting up, clouds
started to roll in from the western horizon, as jupiter had not cleared my
home building's obstruction I could not start imaging. Finally when my scope
is still 50% blocked by the building I took this image while the clouds are
still "inches" away from blocking jupiter. Seeing looks good and getting 50%
blocked doesn't seems to affect the resolution too much.

I was very happy with the processed image.

Seeing about 5-6/10, the GRS has not come into view yet but you can see the
dark matter circulating near at the preceding side of the GRS on the very
edge of the following limb. Very interesting.

Wei Leong.

Hi Tan.

As always your images are awesome! I do have a request, can you post the raw image? I would like to see how good a TAK mirror is and how much processing was done.

That is some processing to get that much detail out of the raw image. Would you care to post your technique?

Beautiful shot, as usual, Tan!

Please post info on how many shots were stacked to get this final one...

Again, keep them coming!

Hi Tan, nice shot as usual. Can you explain what those numbers mean underneath the picture?
