    Default Jupiter The Great Red Spot with Moons





    Weather was perfect for imaging looked like it wasn't going to clear up before Transit of the great red spot but it did.
    The date is wrong on the picture was June 20th 2019.
    Focus was pretty good I guess with the Celestron Nexstar 5SE, used the Fine Touch Feather Focuser that Orange County Telescope makes maybe that helped a small bit but pretty pleased with the out come.
    I am not sure why the grey color is in Jupiter for maybe one of you might know?

    Excellent photo. I am more in viewing, observational aspects than photography. In my recent session ( 28 May night), I had a spectacular view of Jupiter with Ganymede shadow passing over Jupiter. GRS was crisp. I observe its color is now more Red compared to some old pics. Grey color in Jupiter : yes, I did notice but dont know the reason. One more: the back streaks near GRS are again , new as compared to some old pics.

    Hi Matt. As a lunar and planetary guy, I really appreciate your work on here. Excellent contrast and equatorial banding, including the GRS, and also the Galilean moons in your fine capture. Thanks for sharing this great image with us on here Matt, and the best of regards.

    Much appreciated I am happy that Jupiter at least came out nicely round compared to my last images.
    Was a bit disappointed in the ASI120MC-S but now that I can see it will do me just fine I am pleased with it.
    Planning to try and do some imaging tonight extremely hot outside temperature has reached the 89° C hardly any wind and Mosquitoes will be out in force, gonna be high dew point and the Humidity is 51%.
