Re: Jupiter and Saturn 4K Time Lapse
Your footage is incredible. I had more of the landscape and some time lapses around the Baltic Sea in Germany. Was pretty wild:

Re: Jupiter and Saturn 4K Time Lapse

Here's my time lapse spanning the best 45 minutes of the Great Conjunction that I was able to observe. Played back at 15x, 30x, 60x and 120x realtime. If you watch the fastest versions of the video you can see the moons of Jupiter and Saturn moving through the frame. Each frame was automatically aligned on Jupiter and stacked in 0.5 second segments to make up the frames of the time lapse.

Thx for filming this, Astro — really enjoyed watching!

I found another time lapse of the great conjunction out there.

This sequence of images is more clear, imho.

Mr Astromut, in your opinion, what we be a good budget telescope for a beginner? Don't want to sink too much dough into it as I don't know how much time I would actually devote to it.

Thank you very much, Doc. This is incredible. And thanks for getting rid of the jackass saying it was boring.

I saw Ganymede and Europa. But I can't find the moon(s) of Saturn. Where do I need to be looking?

 Quoting: Astromut


Yeah, I saw Ganymede and Europa. I think I misunderstood your previous post about the moons of Jupiter and Saturn moving in the time lapse. I took it to mean some of Saturn's moons were visible to track in addition to Saturn itself. My mistake.

Thanks again for the best and most reliable data on GLP! Your time, effort, and knowledge are valuable to me and others here.

Re: Jupiter and Saturn 4K Time Lapse
i thought they were supposed to line up?

wtf
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 51484552


i also don't get it, from all the streams on TV

where were these pictures, video material taken from, some side star planet that we have a 45 degree angle view?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79799867


or from the Hubble i'd assume?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79799867


1/10 of a degree is about twice the maximum field of view of the Hubble Space Telescope. Now maybe they took some mosaic image and will stitch them together, I don't know, but they certainly couldn't fit both in a single field of view with any of the main cameras at one moment in time. I never said they would line up, they were always going to be about 6 arcminutes apart. This is why you guys should do your own research, don't just trust things your spoon fed from unreliable sources.

Re: Jupiter and Saturn 4K Time Lapse
That is so awesome to see!

Dumb question: why does Saturn look to be at a (roughly) 90 degree axis to earth's perspective?

I always thought...Neptune?... was the only planet spinning on a different axis than the rest of them.

Pretty cool, thanks Astro.

I was expecting them to come closer together and converge/lap over eachother but I guess that's as close as they came and then started to drift apart after that?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3451740


The closest they came was 1/10th of a degree. That's about 20 times larger than Jupiter itself in the view. That's still incredibly close though, this is the only time in my lifetime I will be able to fit both planets in the view at this magnification.
 Quoting: Astromut

Oh yes! I never thought about it in that way.
Spectacular - thanks :)
