Jupiter UTC

CM1: 279.30°

CM2: 178.60°

CM3: 245.90°

CLat: -1.40°

Description

This was a difficult morning of imaging. The focuser was not moving and the motor was emitting a loud buzz when sending commands. After seeing no issues externally, I opened the motor in the dark to investigate myself and confirmed the motor itself was not moving. Clouds started rolling in as I reattached it, so I quickly focused manually and started recording before losing Jupiter to the clouds.

Notes:

  • The North Equatorial belt is chaotic.
  • White Spot Z is approaching the central meridian.
  • The Equatorial Zone is orange.
