Jupiter and Deep Sky Objects

13/3/2016

Roger Samworth

 

The reason I coudn't see the Spot recently is that I was looking at the wrong times. I was using this calculator to predict the transit: http://www.acquerra.com.au/astro/software/jupiter.html. Other versions of this seem do something similar

Based on last night's observations, this site predicts the correct times:

I have also attached a composite image of Jupiter and the moons. Look how close Europa and Ganymede are!

Also imaged some DSOs.
