Jarkko Suominen

My son and I went to a nearby field to observe the starry sky. Before the Sleeping Mat arrived we grabbed a small number of pictures of Jupiter with the wise we stacked on this picture. The picture was thus taken in the middle of Poria, in the middle of light pollution.

Pretty bright, for camera shooting.

At the end of the filming I took a couple more videos of Jupiter and apparently it was a good weather :)

Tero Parkkonen

Hard were the promises made by meteoblue (seeing index1 = 5 index2 = 4) but the reality was fiercer. Pretty much average averaging, maybe a little worse than what I’ve been used to in recent years, but it did bring about that animation of Jupiter’s rotation. The animation also shows very well how much seeing varies during the shooting session (25 approx. 70s videos) between 22:00 and 23:00.

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

There was a different kind of project in mind today, but when at times the weather seemed quite moderate, I was left to take more video clips. However, this remained the best.

Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

Jupiter for a long time. The non-flashing stars promised good seeing and the planet was suitably stagnant in the high southern sky.

M44, Jupiter

15.3.2015 at 20.50 - Lieksa (III)
Toni Kiiskinen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

A preference for planets and conjunctions made me illuminate a few squares of Jupiter near M44. My first-class daughter binoculared next to me in a quiet North Karelian darkness on Tainiovaara in Lieksa. We were silent.

Jupiter

14.3.2015 at 22.04 - Pieksämäki (III)
Timo Kantola, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

March 14, 2015 Jupiter's moon Io passed in front of Jupiter and made a complete eclipse of Jupiter. The course of the Ion shadow could be followed from Pieksämäki between 19:52-22:07 (2h 15min). I took a lot of pictures of the eclipse, here are the best of them. At 18:52 Io is about to move between Pieksämäki and Jupiter - this happened at 19:04. The shadow shifts from the morning to the surface, and ends on the other side in the evening color. at 19:54 the shadow of Ion is already wandering on the surface of Jupiter. The partial magnification shows the teardrop-shaped shape of the shadow....

14.3.2015 at 21.20 - Valkeakoski (IV)
Veli-Pekka Käkönen, Tampereen Ursa

I photographed Jupiter from my backyard and Ion’s passage with his shadows was recovered again. The weather was pretty good this time and seeing at times even really good.

Jupiter

15.3.2015 at 20.32 - Tampere (III)
Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

I got a new toy on vacation, a (used) ASI120MC color camera I bought from England. I got to try it on Jupiter right away. Seems quite valid but the weather wasn't very wonderful now.

Jupiter

14.3.2015 at 23.09 - 23.21 - Orimattila, Artjärvi, Tähtikallio (III)
Veikko Mäkelä, Ursa (Helsinki)

I decided to try Jupiter’s visual observation at Star Rock Mead. Seeing was once again quite poor (S = 3-4) and it taxed far what was seen from the surface of the planet. In fact, I just haven’t managed with good seeing to detect Jupiter in a big tube. Five cloud belts and a few private sites stood out from the surface of the planet. #keskimeridiaanit: SI = 327 °, S II = 67 °, S III = 345 °

Jeh. For the first time, a reasonable picture, even though I say it myself. Compiled from two pictures

Image of the shadow transit of Io.

Kasper Heinonen

I looked at the Sky-watcher900 / 130 with a tube and shot with a standard pocket camera, holding it through my 10mm eyepiece by hand.

Recently purchased the Zwo ASI034, to capture the eclipse. (Sorry I may just have ruined the eclipse for everyone now) But have had the chance to use it today and this was the final image from it. A lot of practice still needed but pleased already with the results.

Let's try out how the walimex 500mm lens works with Canon's crop cell for planetary imaging. It's not weird now, but it's recognizable.

Jupiter

9.3.2015 at 19.30 - Jyväskylä (III)
Harri Kiiskinen, Jyväskylän Sirius

Last night was a long evening for a long time, a couple of degrees of warmth and not even the moon in the sky. I haven't had much time to enjoy such filming this winter. Targeted through the Jupiter Skymax 127 pipe. Yes, that already identifies the object.

First few even managed my photos from the sky. From the arm through the lens of the TAL-1. Jupiter appears and at least four months. It's insanely difficult to make anything appear in pictures. : D Photography tips welcome.
