Animations obtained from Carcavelos, Portugal, with a 14" SCT at f/10, a ASI183MM pro camera (original sampling 2x2 bin) and a 1000nm IR filter or a CH4 filter. Each frame results from stacking a 1min SER file. Frame time (UT) was 17.52 (first frame) and 18:12 (last frame). Jupiter was maintained in a fixed position. Jupiter rotation, Galilean satellite motion, Saturn and background star motion can be observed. Also notice distinct Jupiter and Saturn appearance with long-pass IR (>1000nm) and Methane (889nm) filters.
