Kathy goes over to the dark side - Jupiter

#1

Post by KathyNS »


I got my gear all set up to record the Mars occultation on Wednesday night. It doesn't look like that is going to happen, because of weather, but I did want to get the finder and the focus position dialed in. So I played with Jupiter a bit.

This is the best 10% of 5000 frames, with a C-11 at f/10 and an ASI120MC. Captured in SharpCap and processes in Autostakkert!

A very nice image Kathy.

I'm conflicted about setting up for the occultation. If I set up early so I'm prepared then I will definitely get weathered out. If, on the other hand, I do no prep then I stand a good chance of seeing the event even though I won't be in a position to record it - but at least I'll see it.

What to do, what to do?

My weather picture for Wednesday evening. 93% cloud cover and a 40% chance of snow - not looking good.. :(

Thanks!

That's really good Kathy. I'm hoping to catch Mars here visually in addition to Jupiter. Also may try to image a bit. So far my efforts with the ASI 120 have been failures to laughable. Need more practice.
