Jupiter

Lasse Ekblom

Jupiter imaged in better-than-average IR weather. The planet was low (24-26 degrees) at the time of filming. Keli collapsed very quickly. IR-RGB images. I made a few stereo pairs, by saving the images and adjusting the size, you can find an eye-friendly image size for stereo viewing.
