Amazing video of Jupiter’s rotation by Mike Phillips

Planetary astrophotographer Mike Phillips made amazing 8 second video of Jupiter. Mike filmed Jupiter through his home-made f/4.5 14″ Newtonian telescope for a consecutive 1.5 hours on September 12, 2012. He batched up groups of frames, stacked them together (to pull out higher resolution) and finally stitched the whole thing back together to create a video that shows off Jupiter’s rotation.

Once Jupiter reaches opposition, Mike thinks he’ll be able to get a full rotation of the planet.
