Description

I normally do a wide field calibration image with the Luminance filter, before starting an RGB sequence. This allows me to fine tune the image calibration process in WinJUPOS. I decided to process and post this single 90 second run, because the seeing was so good, that the moons were captured nicely as discrete circular globes. I have selectively brightened the dimmer moons such as Enceladus and Mimas.
