Moon and Jupiter


Clear night. Moon and Jupiter on the meridian. For this session, I used APT to capture the images. I usually use two astro-photography applications: BackyardEOS and APT. I use APT when imaging the Moon and bright planets because APT provides short exposures down in the 1/100th range: and these short exposures are needed with these very bright objects. The magnified Lunar image was produced with eyepiece projection: a 9mm eyepiece with Canon T3 Rebel. That with a 10-inch aperture with f/4 would be about 113x magnification.
