Galilean Moon Phenomena

Post by Christopher K. » April 12th, 2016, 11:25 am

With a certain acquired skill set and the appropriate equipment, intriguing shots of Jupiter's four largest moons can be acquired. BRAS member Art Barrios, on 21 September 2010, caught Jupiter with Europa and Europa's shadow. He used his driveway in Baton Rouge as the imaging location. He had a Meade 10" Reflector on a motorized German equatorial mount. The camera was a 3Com Homeconnect USB Webcam slid into an Orion 2X Barlow lens. Art used Registax, VirtualDub and Photoscape to do the processing.
