Jupiter - 17.9.2023 at 01.31 Helsinki Observation number 118714

Visibility Unclassified

Pasi Siitonen, Ursa (Helsinki)

Small clouds rolled into the sky at midnight, but I noticed that the seeing is otherwise the best I've experienced during the past year of the hobby. I then waited for them to crack and at 1:31 I was able to record a three-minute video. Perseverance was rewarded and the end result is my best picture of Jupiter so far. The planet was at 35° altitude.

Hyvä, että löysit pilviraon, kuva on varsin mainio. Suuri punainen pilkku näyttää kurkkaavan aivan tuolla reunalla ja sekä SEB että NEB ovat varsin yksityiskohtaisia.
