New Jupiter Photos by Torsten Hansen

Blogged by Jonathan Maron on July 3, 2008 and tagged with Sample Images, Jupiter.

Torsten Hansen is an amateur astronomer, based in Germany, who has just submitted some images he captured with a brand new DMK 21AF04.AS astronomy camera.

In his e-mail to The Imaging Source, Torsten wrote (translated from German):

These are the first images that I have submitted to the Astronomy Cameras Blog. One image of Jupiter at 20° altitude in RRGB and one in IRRGB (685nm), captured with a 8″ Newton. You can easily see the two additional red spots to the side of the Great Red Spot.
