JUPITER

Updated: Oct 28, 2019

Jupiter is one of the best planets to photograph!

Below you can see our few attempts at the planet. Note that we will update this post more in depth and take more photos when Jupiter, just like Saturn did, wins your votes, and be the star of a complete Galactic Hunter episode.


GEAR USED:

Camera: Canon t3i

Telescope: Orion 8" Astrograph f/3.9

Mount: Atlas EQ-G motorized Mount

Coma: Baader MPCC Coma Corrector MkIII

Processing: Pixelmator


Jupiter without a Telescope

Jupiter can easily be captured without a telescope! Below is our photo using our old Canon t3i with a 300mm lens. You can see several moons, which are annotated.



Jupiter and its Moons with a telescope

Of course, you will need a telescope if you hope to see any details in the planet! Here is another photo of Jupiter and its moons, but using our 8" telescope.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Jupiter, along with Saturn and Mars, is one of the best planets to see and photograph. We do not have great planetary equipment, but we plan to get a much better picture of it when it is time for this gas giant to be in an episode of Galactic Hunter.


Clear Skies,

Galactic Hunter
