2019 Jupiter Imagery

I decided to move all my imagery for each year for each planet into a single blog post for that year. Here are the Jupiter images from 2019. All the images were taken through a Celestron C6 using a Canon SL2 DSLR camera. Data was processed using PIPP to process and convert the raw camera video, AutoStakkert to stack the video frames, Registax to sharpen the image using wavelets, Pixelmator to adjust color, contrast, etc, and finally, Topaz DeNoise (in recent images) to help remove lingering noise. I'm currently processing all data on a 2016 12" Macbook with PIPP, AutoStakkert, and Registax (which are PC programs) running on the Mac using WineBottler.

I captured an animation of Jupiter on the evening of July 27th, 2019 (4 UTC on the 28th) with Io and Io's shadow passing in front of Jupiter. The loop is from approximately 9:30-11:30 CDT on 27 July 2019 (2:30-4:30 UTC on July 28th). Here is a single frame with the description followed by the actual animation.

This was my first attempt at capturing an animation of Jupiter. First, here is the best single image from around 10 pm CDT 19, July 2019.


The animation below consists of 13 images taken about 5 minutes apart. Each image is stacked and processed from one minute of video taken with a Canon SL2 attached to a C6 with 2x and 1.6x barlow lenses.
