Posted 2/07/10 - Jupiter's Great Red Spot
Date: 09/21/09, Optics: LX200 10" F10, Camera: NexImage, Mount: LX200 Classic
I had the opportunity to capture images of the Great Red Spot (GRS), which really helps to show off
the rotation of the planet. The imaging session started with the first capture at 10:05PM and finished at 11:45PM. As can be seen in the animation, I should have started earlier to catch it from the moment it rotated into view. I took images every 5 minutes with a total of 20 being used to create the animation. I did additional processing on my favorite of the bunch, taken at 10:15PM.
