My attempts at astro imaging

Jupiter from last night

I went out late last night as Jupiter was just so bright I could not resist have a wee go at it  It’s been years since I did any planetary and I know remember why!  Jupiter was pretty steady, the detail looked not too bad but the processed images are not great – you can see 2 bands but thats about it.  To be fair its an old Philips webcam that must be over 10 years old but they used to have a good reputation so maybe its down to my processing skills!


Another shot, this time with a 2X Barlow to increase the image scale….



The star like object at the top right is the moon Io and the little black spot on the surface of Jupiter is the shadow of the moon Europa – actually quite pleased with this now!
