    Default Jupiter from 06-10-2018 a brief opening



    Well I caught a very brief opening last night of about 30-40 minutes. Probably could have gone later but I was tired

    Besides the seeing was about as bad as it gets, what with Jupiter being kind of low below the 2x airmass, the 99.9% humidity, and the jetstream racing along. Yea about as bad as it gets. The grass was still wet from the rain earlier in the day and the temperature was in the high 70's F.

    But heck! It wasent raining and I could see a few stars so hey why not!

    I tried a varity of methods and resolutions with sharpcap and ran about 7 video files around 2 minutes each. Used Pipp to sort out the best 30%, then culled that even further in Autostakkert down to 10% of the remainder. Wavlets, color, framing, and cropping all done in Registax.

    Results are not bad considering. Some of the avi were just real crap from clouds and operator error so here is the best two of the lot.

    That was at native focus at a focal length of 2,000mm (f8)

    22_55_23_g4_ap9 by Tom Whit, on Flickr

    That was with a 2x barlow shot at 640x480 binned x2 to try to overcome the rotten seeing

    Maybe one night I will get an actual 'clear' night to try this untill then at least I got out for a while and Flounder was able to supervise a bit

    That's what Stubbs did too. Right at the scope spot. Probably wondering why the heck wasn't I out there too.

    Yea he sits out there in the general area after 'dinner' as dusk approaches.

    Sooner or later he figures out "Not tonight we have clouds" or he just gives up. Then goes into the house and sits in the wifes lap

    But when he sees me carrying out those 'boxes' he get's all interested. Loves to watch and then get underfoot!
