Astrophotos - Sun, Jupiter, Saturn

Blogged by Aurélie Le Fort-Beunink on March 7, 2013 and tagged with Sample Images, Sun, Saturn, Jupiter.

I use my DMK 21AU04.AS to image the Sun and I use my DBK 21AU618.AS to image the planets.

Here I have one of my best images of the Sun, with the Active Region AR1429 flaring on March 06th, 2012 at 12:28 UTC.

I am also sending two images of the planets, one of Jupiter and one of Saturn. The interesting thing in the image of Jupiter is that I was able to image some transits at the same time: 1 - Transit of Io; 2 - Transit of the shadow of Io; 3 - Transit of Ganymede; 4 - Transit of the Great Red Spot; and 5 - Oval BA (Red Spot Jr) almost setting.
