Jupiter is at opposition on the 26th September, that means that the planet will rise at the same time as the sun sets and will be in the sky for the whole night, it will also be at best viewing as its at its closest to our Earth.
When observing and taking images of the planets the sky conditions have to be so steady, if there is any moisture or jet streams in the air it’s very difficult to obtain good videos for stacking.
Sometimes you have to be very patience and just keep watching your computer or camera screen and wait for that few minutes when the seeing goes calm. Or another trick is to wait until the planet is half or three quarters way up the sky or near the zenith where the seeing is usually a bit better.
This is my first image of Jupiter for 2022 and I’m quite happy with the result, even though there was a lot of moisture in the sky.
My images were taken at ‘My Stardust Observatory’ with a Meade 10inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and a ZWO ASI 120MC –S planetary CMOS camera.
AVI videos were captured and stacked in RegiSta6 and processed in PS CS4.
