First Test on Jupiter with My New DMK 21AU618.AS

Blogged by Aurélie Le Fort Beunink on August 11, 2011 and tagged with Sample Images, Jupiter.

Here I'm submitting you a couple of images taken about two hours ago. The camera is definetively much sensitive in IR than DMK 31AF03.AS.

In the methane band (890nm), I should use maximum gain and an exposure of 6-8 seconds for my DMK 31AF03.AS in my C11. [See Jupiter Images] . The very fast rotation of Jupiter that offers a very low chance to get good methane band images before the rotation of planet was noticeable. With the new DMK 21AU618.AS, for this image I have use a gain of 600 and 1 second of exposition. This methane image it is just a test but shows the habilities of the new camera.
