This is another nice photo of Jupiter on its perihelia opposition. It was taken by Professor Dr. Michael Schuster in Munich, 20.09.10.

Jupiter on its perihelia opposition

Here is what he said:

The upcoming perihelia opposition of Jupiter in mind I decided to purchase a DBK 21AU04.AS camera, to see how it performs as a stand-alone solution and as a potential RGB source for L-RGB composites e.g. with my DMK 21AU04.AS camera.

In the night of September 20th I recorded a series of videos (30 fps, BY8, RGB24, Baader UV/IR filter) with the new camera which was mounted to a Celestron C 9.25 OTA operated at F22. Seeing conditions were good (7/10). The videos were processed with Registax 5 (Alignment: Center of gravity; Stacking: 1424 out of 4537 frames at a 98% quality level; Wavelet Sharpening: Levels 2&3) and Adobe Photoshop CS2 (final processing).

I am happy with the new camera and I guess convenience will more often get out of hand….

Thank you Professor!

BTW, your previous photos of the Moon aroused interests among visitors. There are a few comments left in that post. Would you like to communicate back?
