Jupiter Image by Piotr Maliński

Blogged by Xiao Sun on June 18, 2010 and tagged with Sample Images, Jupiter.

Piotr Maliński has been a frequent contributor of our blog since the beginning of the year. He uses DMK 21AF04.AS astronomy camera for his Astrophotography.

On June 08, Piotr mailed us a Jupiter image in color. The photo seems to be the only image of the giant gas planet since we got one three months ago.


Image was made at 3:30 in the morning with 8″ SCT and DMK 21AF04.AS. I've used Baader basic RGB filters and Pro Planet 742 for the IR luminescence, which helped a lot in the final image.

Many thanks to Piotr!
