Last night's images

Jupiter & Deep Sky Objects

28/3/2016

Roger Samworth

 

Some results of last nights imaging-

The image of Jupiter is not brilliant, but it isn’t too bad. There is an interesting white spot on the northern equatorial belt. This was done with the PD, but it seemed to confirm that the Toucam is a better option for planets, although I’m not clear why it should be. I will revert to it next time out. The moons were strung out nicely, and in the right order!

I then spent an hour amongst the galaxies around Leo and Leo Minor. NGC  3344 and 3504 are both barred spirals. You can see the bars on both and the spiral arms on NGC 3344.
