Jupiter - 21.3.2016 at 21.24 - 21.3.2016 at 21.26 Iitti, Kausala Observation number 49952

Visibility IV / V

Ari Ollikainen, Konut tählet, Jaala

I’ve tried to get a decent picture of Jupiter with my lightweight series of hobbies (SW80ED and Skymax 127), but so far I haven’t been very happy myself since. The association’s ASI120MC-s brought improvement, but not enough. The cause became clear a couple of days ago. My laptop couldn’t take the frames fast enough and that’s why the packaging remained of poor quality. The thing got better when I decided to try my wife’s new laptop. There will now be 10x more frames in the same amount of time. Thus, even with the old Maksutov, you can get a good print with 2x barlov.

Mainio Jupiter-kuva.

Kiitos. Nyt kun on homma alkanut sujua, taitaa loppua kausi ja kelit kesken.

Ei toki. Vielähän tässä on ainakin kuukausi keliä (ja itse asiassa Jupiter varsinkin kestää kuvausta vaaleammaltakin taivaalta).

Hieno on!
