Jupiter 2015March 05 23:40 UT


Another night of imaging Jupiter. Used a newer version of firecapture 2.4.0.8 beta for the first time. Might have been a little slower with a few usb bus artifacts.

Seeing was not great, focus was not that great, the sun had just set 30 minutes earlier and the full moon had already risen.
A lot of negatives with the sky still bright. In the realtime view I could barely make out one equatorial belt.
Meade 10cm SC with FL=1000mm and the asi120mc camera. 4 and 5ms exposures, one minute runs, north is up.
It is about 45 pixels across, coincidentally the apparent diameter was about 44 arc seconds.
Approx 7500 frames were captured at about 128 fps.
30% of the best of those were used to generate this image.
