My best image of Jupiter as Yet with the C14EdgeHD!

On the 11th of november, the scope reach thermal equilibrium at about 10pm, thanks to the temperature difference between day and night being pretty small these days. Just in time to have yet another go at Jupiter with the modified webcam. I first did a quick check on a nearby star, and the collimation was about spot on and only a small tweek was required. The picture below was taken at about 22:58 UT, just as Europes shadow (visble below the South equatorial band) started transiting on the planet. Seeing after that quickly deteriorated. Anyway, this is my best ever image so far!

      Thx John!
      Well, I think you could work wonders with your own C14. It does not necessitate as much investment as deep sky astrophotography.

  • That is a really nice picture of Jupiter. I like the shadow of Europa just coming into shot. Which modded webcam are you using?
