Jupiter

Timo Kantola, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

Jupiter photographed with a methane filter. On the Internet, I found information that in methane filter images, the uppermost clouds of Jupiter are visible the brightest, and the lower the clouds are, the further you look through the methane-rich atmosphere of Jupiter, at the 890 nm wavelength of the filter, the methane absorbs the light and does not reflect it back into space, that's why. areas darker. Last picture with IRpass filter. The road was very bad.

GRS hunting at Tyyrinmäki tower. Eessuntaas- animation for about an hour. The sharpness could have been better.

Jupiter

12.10.2022 at 22.15 - 22.20 - Ulvila (IV)
Juha Ojanperä, Porin Karhunvartijat

I finally managed to make a visual observation of Jupiter with Ulvila's 280 mm Schmidt-Cassegrain (Celestron C11). During my observation, Jupiter is at an altitude of approx. 20 degrees. Seeing was mediocre, but you could make an observation. The great red dot was just turning out of sight. The details of the northern equatorial belt stood out nicely. The southern equatorial belt also seemed to be visible quite well, especially compared to my previous observations with the 154 mm Cassegrain. Em. with a smaller Cassegrain, the southern equatorial belt has appeared dimmer relative to the nor...

Jerry Jantunen, Ursa (Helsinki)

The dreams of good planetary weather had already been dashed in the unstable weather of autumn, but in the end it turned out to be even exceptionally good weather (which we obviously got to enjoy at least in Tampere as well). There was a small ripple in the air, but for a while the seeing was so smooth that the 75-second video had 90% of the stackable image, or about 6700 frames. I don't remember ever getting more than 30 percent of any clip in the stack before. Visible was the side where the light clouds of the equatorial zone seem to encroach on the northern part of the SEB. CMI=313.4° C...

It was such a good observation environment that I filmed for 2 hours so that I took 2-minute videos every 10 minutes. I even managed to make a video of them.

Jupiter and moons from left: Ganymede, Io, Europa and Callisto. Yup and six from different exposures. A gap of approx. 1½ min, i.e. the change in positions is not significant.

6.10. the northern lights were expected. And it came. At the beginning, however, I thought it was pretty funny that I got the green of the Moon, Jupoter, Levitunturi and the aurora borealis from the clouds.

Jupiter

9.10.2022 at 20.26 - Helsinki (III)
Tuomas Salo, Ursa (Helsinki)

I photographed Jupiter and got its moons: Ganymede, Io, Europa and Callisto clearly visible. The star HIP417, which is 452.99 light-years away from Earth, also came into the picture. Its magnitude is 6.3.

Arja-Sisko Airila, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Moon and Jupiter close together. I just wanted to get in front of the clouds, but the edges of the clouds often colored into a beautiful ring around the Moon.

Jupiter as a dot on iin above the Moon. Clear weather, but a strong wind swayed the fleet. A sharper drawing was wanted. Tyyri's Hill Observatory.

Marko Myllyniemi, Lakeuden Ursa

While photographing the moon, I also photographed the encounter between the Moon and Jupiter. I was so lazy that I couldn't bring myself to dig out the tripod, even though it would have taken better pictures than Nikon's superzoom (especially in an already darkened sky)... ;-) The first picture was taken at nightfall at 7:13 p.m. and the second picture a little over three hours later, at 10:27 p.m., when the Moon had already passed below Jupiter. The pictures from the last shooting session went straight to the pine and this was the best show of them. Laziness is rewarded or how did it ...

Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

I was waiting for the meeting of the moon and Jupiter in the evening. The cloudiness was persistent, it wasn't until 1 o'clock that the sky opened enough for me to get the pictures.

My friend posted that the Moon and Jupiter are close together. I immediately took out the camera and went to shoot. I just had to edit the picture because the Moon was too bright in the picture compared to Jupiter. (Fire "fog" around the Moon). However, a phenomenon worth seeing for a long time. After editing, the image became quite clear.

I went to capture the moon, and as a bonus, Jupiter was a nice companion in the darkening sky. A few beachgoers also came to admire the spots of light on the opposite shore of the lake. Wider shot cropped from two exposures so that the moon is not a completely blown out white ball.

I photographed Jupiter and the Moon in the same image field. Jupiter's moons were from left: Europa, Ganymede, Callisto and Io. I also photographed Jupiter and the Moon separately. Jupiter and the Moon were in conjunction at 10:22 p.m.

When our orbiter rose from the east this evening, I noticed a bright non-twinkle "star" next to it, which turned out to be Jupiter when viewed through my Newtonian mirror telescope.

Moon and Jupiter relatively close. I tried to add a bit of atmosphere, otherwise it's easily a bit boring picture :)

Visual observation/drawing of Jupiter at night 6/7/10/2022. The northern equatorial belt appears to be clearly darker than its southern counterpart. In the end, seeing was OK, the details stood out quite nicely. Using a yellow filter. The strong wind caused the pipe to vibrate, which hindered detection somewhat.

I photographed Jupiter and got its moons: Callisto, Io, Europa and Ganymede visible. The lights of a flying plane also happened to be recorded in the same photo.

Paula Wirtanen, Ursa (Helsinki)

For once, at the right time, clear air and quite decent seeing. Jupiter lived its own life and after a break of a good month I was happy to see it again with the help of a telescope. The NEB (that is, the North Equatorial Belt) was the most distinct and dominant detail. There were bulges and darkening, the color was slightly reddish. A small darkening stood out at the edge of the NPR (North Pole Region). The SEB (that is, the Southern Equatorial Belt, the one with the Great Red Dot near it) has, based on the observations, lived quite a bit from very dark to almost imperceptible during this obs...

When I woke up a little before midnight today, I took a picture of Jupiter shining quite high in the southern sky with my old iPhone 5s smartphone. (I replaced it with another picture of Jupiter I took at the same time, sorry, the first picture was really inaccurate.)

I was waiting for a possible gap in the clouds, and Jupiter finally hit a suitable gap for one short video clip. Europa and Ganymede were visible next to Jupiter. Collimation wouldn't have been bad, but there wasn't enough cloud gap for that.

Was hoping for a night of Aurora but when a Solar storm misses and the sky is clear the next best thing to do is have a look at other objects in the Solar system. Spent a couple of hours playing about with Jupiter. A celestron 4se was used with a wedge and the ZWO ASI 290mc camera.
