Over the course of a few hours you can see this rapid rotation, as the planet takes less than 10 hours to rotate once on its axis. You can follow and photograph its course in just a couple of hours, which is what I did this evening in April last year. I also captured the Galilean moon Io not far away from the planet.
When the Earths atmosphere is clear and steady I am just amazed that you are able to capture these incredible features on the surface of Jupiter, even though this huge gas planet is over 600,000 kilometres away from us!
Images were taken with a Meade 10inch LX200 Schmidt Cassegrain telescope at prime focus with a ZWO ASI120MC-S camera and a 2x Barlow lens attached. Three sets of AVI movie files were captured within a couple of hours of rotation and each 2000 frame movie was stacked in RegiStax6 and processed in PS CS4.
Image taken not long after midnight on the 13th April 2018.
