Lunar Eclipse 2018-07-27

Just before the Sun got lost

I imaged the lunar eclipse, as much as the clouds allowed me to. The main instrument was the Canon 1100D mod @ SW MC 102/1300 on the HEQ5. The secondary instrument was the battle tested veteran raspberry pi, and I used a Canon A800 too, and my phone.

Jovial Eclipse 2015-03-09, 10

While prepping for the partial solar eclipse (March 20) I filmed another jovial eclipse. I used winjupos* to look for a moon-moon eclipse and foudn that Ganymede is going to cast a shadow onto Europa on ~ 2015-03-09 23:39 UTC. So I set up my equipment to observe and record. Sadly the seeing was below avarage, so not many disk details could be mined out of the images with stacking – the stacked picture looks like a raw from this session -, but the moons danced almost as expected. I found that winjupos is one or two minutes off, but nevermind. Then I used Registax6 to stack the individual videos (22 videos, about 25 GiB) into individual frames. I touched up the pics with IrfanView’s batch processing* (rotation, a bit saturation) then I used PIPP* to center Jupiter, frame the scene and create the gifs. A bit of GIMP* was also used.

Vertically shifted sum of all frames. Background noise accumulates and original framing and rotation during post-processing also become obvious

Jól kalibrált monitoron mindegyik számnál elkülönülő árnyalat látszik. Ha mégsem látszanak, akkor a megjelenített képek színhiányosan rajzolódnak ki. A monitort valószínűleg kalibrálni kell.

You should see distinct shades for each number. If those shades are not clearly visible, the displayed pictures will lack accuracy. Your display most likely needs to be calibrated (brightness, gamma, contrast etc.).
