Hi all,

I was imaging the moon last night and finally I swung the scope over to Jupiter. The gas giant is a difficult target this season for my location with altitudes hardly over 30°. With settings of the ToUcam of 1/100s and 10fps the seeing was just 'frozen' enough to get some AVIs with acceptable sharpness. Nothing great but sufficient for a tiny 3 frame animation without the GRS 8)

Here the details:

I hope the images are not too embarrassing among all your fantastic Jupiter captures.

Cheers & clear skies,

Nice animation Oliver! Given the conditions under you were imaging. I would say that you abtained a good result. Therefore nothing to be embarassed about smile

Ciao Oliver

That's great Oliver!
Question, how long was the period between the first and last frame?

Keep it up! wink

Hi Oliver -

A very nice short movie. It is interesting to see how much sharper the view seems when the details are moving.

Thanks for sharing it -

Jupiter animations are always a joy to watch. They are also very difficult to make. Thanks for sharing.
