First Attempt at Jupiter Animated GIF, with Io

Putting together this animated GIF was mostly an accident turned prototype.  I had planned to try making Jupiter animations once I felt reasonably confident with my digital camera.  But I noticed after Monday night’s session, which happened to capture Io as it was about to pass behind Jupiter, that I had roughly 12 minutes of video on Jupiter, somewhat evenly spaced.  So here is the end result.

I used different gammas, which causes a couple of the frames to be brighter.  If I wanted to make a clean GIF I would have uniformly set the gamma.  Also, I discovered that centering the image is very tricky, and will likely be the hardest part of the process when I try to string together an hour or two of footage.  Maybe I will figure out a shortcut on these cloudy and rainy nights.
