Jupiter on Jan 8 2012 with improved focus on the GRS wake
Here's Jupiter's Great Red Spot centrally located together with a nearby atmospheric wake extending adjacent its right side as shown in my image. The swirling structure of the wake extends within the South equatorial belt for more than 50,000 miles. It consists of enormous convective "supercells" that transport heat from deep within the Jovian atmosphere (down to 4 bars of pressure).
I recorded this RGB image using 2400 individual frames for each of the the 3 color channels at 57 frames per second for the red channel, 53 frames per second for the green channel and 37 frames per second for the blue channel. The focal length for the image is 9,443 mm and the focal ratio is F/34. I used a C11 SCT and a 3x barlow lens together with a monochrome CCD webcam and a color filter wheel.
