Jupiter - 6.1.2015 at 00.42 Oulu Observation number 32823

Visibility IV / V

Jaakko Asikainen, Oulun Arktos

The clouds cracked again for the first time in a month. Not enough that it would have been worthwhile to start photographing the deep sky, so I ended up trying planetary photography for a long time.

This time, I knew I could use the smallest possible RoI to optimize the framerate (20), and the Cadford focuser controlled by the Armadillo also helped me find a nice focus. The focal length was 5600mm with Barlow.

The evening began in pretty hazy characters, another observation is from those times. In twelve countries, the weather became momentarily clear, giving me that most successful Jupiter to date.
