Jupiter through the Club's telescope, 30 August 2011

This image was taken with the Phillips Toucam and the club's telescope (Celestron CGEM, 925 EdgeHD) on 31st August around 2am, by Manuel Castillo, Santa Martinez and Miguel Perez Ayucar. A Barlow magnification lens was used to augment the size of Jupiter. The viewing conditions were poor, so we observed Jupiter between stratus clouds. The image is a processed (Registrax5) stack of a 2min video using the webcam.

Jupiter, visible

We tried also the IR filter, but we could not see the planet! Probably due to the bad cloudy viewing conditions.
