    Default Jupiter bands through 4.5 inch reflector by Iphone SE camera and 82A filter





    Jupiter's bands became visible when a 4 mm eyepiece was used. It is 125 times magnification. When I use a 2x barlow lens, the image does not improve. 82A Filter seems to have a positive effect. After adjusting the contrast and lighting settings of the video, I tried to increase the visibility of the bands.

    Can I get a better view if I use a modified webcam, or it is the final result with this mirror diameter?

    Hello Kok,

    this is a very remarkable result on Jupiter with just an iPhone camera behind a small telescope!
    Congratulations,

    Hi Kok. You did a great job with the 114mm reflector and a handheld iPhone in afocal mode. Although I didn't understand all of the language, there is an old expression that "A picture is worth a thousand words." Your video was superlative, and I could see the equatorial belting of Jupiter clearly in your work. Thanks for sharing this video with us on here Kok, and the best of regards.

    Great work! I have 2x4.5" reflectors and a 5.1" reflector.....these images of Jupiter are where I am observing.

    Check my profile if you like...I've just processed my first image of Jupiter with very similar equipment....would be nice to try and learn more together....just a thought....

    Anyway, lovely, well constructed video...I enjoyed it

    Thank you for the video - it is TERRIFIC to see what a viewer actually sees through an eyepiece, rather than a manipulated digital creation. Having realistic expectations goes a long way to avoid disappointments.
