  2010 Opposition
 
 

Poor seeing. Larger size of previous image.

Poor seeing. The "boring" side of Jupiter

 

 

Larger size of previous image. Note Io and the features visible
 

Good seeing. Comparison betweem RRGB and RGB image

Very good seeing. Larger size of previous image

Very good seeing. The GRS is visible in the right edge of Jupiter.

Poor to fair seeing. The GRS and Oval BA near the edge.

 

Very good seeing. After some mechanical improvements the optical tube seems to work good, although not even at its best. I think a new intubation is needed

 

Larger size of previous image

Good seeing. Second light of C14 scope. Improvements from previous day, but the telescope seems to not perform at its best
 

Larger size of previous image

First image with the new telescope, Celestron C14. Unfortunately the telescope arrived to me in very bad mechanical and optical conditions. Some work (quite expensive) has been done, but still something to fix
 

Very good seeing. Larger size of July 14 image. Note the details inside the GRS and oval BA
 

 

Good to very good seeing and excellent transparency gave my best image of Jupiter so far
  

Very good seeing. Larger size of July 13 image
  

Very good seeing

Excellent seeing. Pure RGB image. 

 

Excellent seeing. Larger size of July 12 image

 

Excellent seeing; many details visible on the disk

 

Good to very good seeing. Larger size of July 11 image
 

 

Good to very good seeing. The GRS is rising

 

Good seeing. Larger size of July 10 image  

 

 

Good seeing. Some small scale dark spots can be seen below the diffraction limit of a 235 mm scope

 

Good seeing. Reprocessing of July 4 image

 

Good to very good seeing. Reprocessing of June 30 image
 



Good seeing. The great red spot is rising
  


Good to very good seeing in near infrared light. Finally Jupiter shows many details.



Jupiter in 2010, very poor seeing. In visible light the SEB (Southern Equatorial Belt) is very faint. In methane light instead the circulation seems to be normal
 



Jupiter, the great red spot and the moons, in daylight, with 1 micron IR filter and CCD camera.
  

Jupiter and the moons in broad daylight with 1 micron IR filter

Comparison between different filters

Fair seeing. Jupiter in 2007. Compare the details with 22nd march 2005 image to see the changes in the atmospheric circulation
 

Bad seeing. Jupiter imaged in broad daylight
 

Jupiter galileian moons at high resolution, compared with the NASA Solar System Simulator. On the right, Amalthea, just 53 arcseconds from the center of Jupiter.

Very good seeing. The GRS dominates the image

Very good to excellent seeing. Note the oval BA (will become the red spot junior in 2006) at central meridian

Fair seeing.The "boring" side of Jupiter

Poor to fair seeing. First image of Jupiter with my new telescope.
