Observations of comet P/Shoemaker-Levy 9 impact on Jupiter from Lick Obseravtory using a high resolution speckle imaging camera

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

During the week of the impacts of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 into Jupiter, we used a speckle imaging camera mounted on the Lick Observatory 3 meter Telescope to record a continuous stream of images of the planet. Because the speckle imaging technique compensates for atmospheric blurring, the resulting images were most likely the highest resolution of any taken from the ground. These images compliment the Hubble Space Telescope data by covering time periods when Hubble was not observing Jupiter. We collected full planet 1024 by 1024 pixel CCD images taken 20 per minute for 4 hours per night over 6 nights ... continued below

Only a portion of this raw data has been reduced to high resolution images to date.
