Nearer Jupiter opposition. The planet began to appear in the sky earlier, but the conditions for its observation still remain unfavorable because of the small altitude. On this night, due to atmospheric turbulence, it was not possible to capture small details. Soon the haze came and the atmosphere deteriorated sharply, we had to stop shooting. However, at least something.

I managed to catch the transit of the Great Red Spot. The atmosphere was lousy, but in the IR range, something I managed to photograph. Noteworthy dark edging around the GRS.

With the CH4 filter (890 nm), the Great Red Spot looks very bright. Unusually.

Another Jupiter. There is a catastrophic lack of time to shoot, the planet too quickly disappears behind a neighbor tree. Nevertheless, it was possible to catch 5 quite good videos from 18.

Also after shooting with a monochrome camera and color filters, I noticed that the image from the color camera was less saturated, and the colors themselves were “dirty”. Most likely, this is caused by a lack of signal in the red and blue channels. When processing I decided to add a little saturation to them, but the green channel remained unchanged.

Also tested the ZWO ADC corrector with a monochrome camera and a blue filter. The result confirmed my guess – for the RGB shooting of low-lying objects, the dispersion corrector is required. Altitude was 19 degrees.

In the CH4 line, everything is pretty bleak, even with the ADC corrector.
