Jupiter, the largest and mightiest planet in our solar system. It’s mass is two and a half times greater than all the other planets combined and has a diameter 11 times larger than the Earth. It is an amazing planet, and a fantastic target for amateur astronomers to observe!
This video demonstrates the use of planetary filters to aid in observing different features of the Jovian atmosphere. Typically, a filter of the opposite color of the feature you want enhanced is used. For example, the contrast of the Great Red Spot and the ruddy brown cloud belts can be improved by using a blue filter. You can also experiment with different colors to see what effects they have. Also, be aware of the tint of the filter you are using. It’s best to avoid darker filters if you are using a small aperture telescope, as the darker tints will block a large portion of light.
