Jupiter from the 16th and 17th of April

The run of terrible seeing continues along the East Coast of Australia, as these Jupiter images were captured last week in less than average seeing on the 16th and 17th of April, 2009.

The first image shows the GRS and the second image shows the NEB outbreak.


Not too much else to report – getting frustrated by the run of horrible conditions. The skies last week were clear for 3-4 days in a row, Jupiter is now over 50° in altitude before sunrise, and yet the air has just been terribly unstable.

And then this week, rain all week so there’s been no chance to do any imaging.

I’ve had my 12″ scope sitting on table outside to take the mirror out and wash it, but I haven’t had a chance to do it. I need to do it tonight so it’s ready for the next clear morning!

I’ll keep trying, the good conditions will have to come soon!
