Vincenzo della Vecchia: Jupiter this morning in average seeing conditions from Aversa (southern Italy). Since the Cassegrain is resting in Turin, I used the 14″ Dobson here.
Vincenzo della Vecchia: Jupiter in acceptable seeing conditions from my site at 45° N. GRS is setting at p limb. The planet is at maximum elongation hence has the maximum phase angle (around 12°).
Tiziano Olivetti: Dear all, attached some images taken this morning under good seeing conditions but poor transparancy due to high clouds. Each color image is the combination of 3 sets of 75 sec at 33 fps. The telescope used is a custom made Dall Kirkham D=505 mm F=10500 mm, 22% Central Obstruction, designed by me …
Vincenzo della Vecchia: Jupiter this morning in acceptable seeing conditions here under the Alps. GRS is rising while Ganymede is transiting upon the disc. Into EZ, a bright plume is visible at CM close to the major festoon.
Vincenzo della Vecchia: I keep monitoring the planet in methane light from my new observing site (not far from Turin), despite the abysmal seeing conditions I am experiencing these days. No noteworthy detail is visibile on the disk.
Vincenzo della Vecchia: Jupiter always in quite bad seeing conditions, mitigated by the use of a methane filter. 3×5′ images added by derotation.
Vincenzo della Vecchia: Here’s Jupiter from my other observing site under Alps, in unfair seeing conditions. I used B filter to highlight NEB and GRS, which was in transit to CM in that moment.
