Visit Worldwide Topsites

Jupiter through astronomical telescope January 28, 2012.

The largest planet by diameter of absolutely all the planets our sun holds so generously, it does not exhaust our interest to contemplate it using different methods, from the naked eye to binoculars, or an astronomical telescope, whether we are only observing it or filming / photographing it.

This video is older but has not been processed yet. In it we see Jupiter through my Newtonian telescope with a few satellites orbiting around it. At the beginning of the clip, the planet is filmed in the distance, thus positioning the largest satellites of the giant planet can be observed. The two which are close to each other to the bottom, are Ganymede and Io, and on the opposite side is Europe. The most distant from Jupiter is Callisto, on the same side of the planet, like Europe.

I did not closed zoom on the planet too much to not hurt the clarity of the bands surrounding it.
