Jupiter with Toucam & Hickson 68

7/3/2016

Roger Samworth
 

Managed to get the set-up fixed last night and deployed the Toucam to image Jupiter. The result is attached, showing Europa also.

Then reverted to the PD to have another go at the Hickson 68 galaxy group. Managed to get it all in this time, including NGC 5350, by turning the camera through 90 degrees. After a bit of GIMP-ing, I am quite pleased with the result.

Then hopped across to NGC 5363, but it isn’t very exciting.

Finally had a look at M3, a globular cluster, and the attached image is a composite of 2 exposures to avoid saturating out the core too much.
