I have a new set of students doing their 3rd year projects on the telescope and they are very good. I will post some of their stuff soon. However, tonight I was out on the roof with them and after even the most enthusiastic one ran out of steam, I still felt like having a go at Jupiter, just a quick go, so I stayed up alone.
Two extremely frustrating hours later I managed to spend about 34 seconds getting this.
I’m supposed to do the following official bit now, people complain when I don’t so here goes:-
3000 shots at 83 frames per second, best 50% stacked, 2.5x televue barlow, skyris 618c, Celestron C14, about a million Zeiss lens wipes and an awful lot of bad language.
The students got some awesome images too, including an object we’ve never seen before. I’ll report this soon, but I need to give them a chance to analyse their data first… (I’ve done a sneak analysis. It’s awesome data.)
