Video Of Jupiter The Jovial Planet Through Telescope

Monday, April 9, 2012 3:40
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents. This video of Jupiter through my telescope, is closely related to another article in which I presented the video captures, which have been most successful so far. Next I am going to process these video images in Registax.

The clip is below, beginning with Jupiter at a lower zoom and exposure set to ‘auto. Giant planet, is accompanied by four of its moons: Io, Ganymede, Europa and Callisto, appear very bright, like phosphorescent pearls.
Starting from the second 54, Jupiter is closer and can be observed the characteristics of this planet, with its bands that we all know. Exposure of these images and by the end of the clip, is set manually, low, so that features on the planet are the best to watch. Focusing the telescope was always adjusted, every time I changed the camera zoom.

Jupiter has been known since ancient times. It is a planet visible to the naked eye. For the Babylonians, this object was the god Marduk. They used the orbit the planet around the Sun of about 12 years, to define their zodiac constellations.
The Romans named it after Jupiter, the most important god in Roman mythology.
Astronomical symbol for this planet is a stylized representation of a lightning bolt of God.
Jovian is the adjectival form of Jupiter. Adjective ‘jovial’, adopted by astrologers in the Middle Ages, has come to mean cheerful or happy“. This mood was attributed to astrological influence of Jupiter.
