Jupiter Observation 11-18-2001
The sky in HoustonTexas was clear with some light fog on the
morning of 11-19-01. The
temperature was in the mid 60's and only dropped 2 degrees F over a 5 hour
period. A cold front is moving through Houston
tonight so I do not expect seeing will be good for several days. A dark blue
streak seems to have developed in the SEB. This image shows no resolved
condensations in the NTB at this longitude. Io is present in the image and has
a somewhat orange appearance.
@ . . . . . . . Here is a Saturn image that was taken on 11-19-2001
The seeing was excellent with very little to no degradation due to
the atmosphere on most sub-exposures.This image probably represents close to the
limit of what the C14 can do as far as resolution is concerned as the atmosphere was not really destructive during these exposures.
Later the seeing decayed to about 7/10 when I was shooting Jupiter that same
This image was processed with non linear
filters to enhance the visibility of the C ring.
