Jupiter stereo pair
« on: May 23, 2017, 06:33:02 PM »
Shots of Jupiter from Sunday night, 21 May.  High clouds interfered with most of the AVIs, but a few worked up very nicely.  Two, recorded 8 minutes apart create an excellent 'cross-eyed' stereo pair.  Despite relative low altitude and suburban seeing conditions, Jupiter has been fascinating.

Way Cool bringing the two images together with my eyes.  What telescope setup did you use for these images?

Thanks.  These are shot with a C925 with 3x Barlow, on a G11 mount.  I have the system setup with a powered Moonlite focuser.
