I've been flip flopping on whether to make yet another Juno thread, but after I finished processing these images and improving the quality of the footage with some calibration frames I figured it was worth it. I captured the Juno probe as well as the spent Centaur upper stage as they were leaving the earth-moon system last night. These images were captured by remotely controlling two telescopes in Spain, GRAS-007 and GRAS-016 (details here: wiki.global-rent-a-scope.com... )

This is the last time anyone will see this little probe before at least October 2013 when it swings by earth again on its way to Jupiter. Good luck Juno!

By the way, the redshift on that galaxy at the lower left hand corner of the first image is approximately 0.03319 (z), which translates to about 457 million light years.

That's very cool.
Just to clarify the 2013 bit. The probe will be taking a pass at Earth in two years after passing beyond the orbit of Mars. The purpose is to get a boost from Earth before continuing on to Jupiter. A free ride. Well, not exactly. It will slow Earth down a teeny tiny bit.

< chills > Wow, I watched Juno launch from across the state, it's kinda surreal to realize that same craft that went up made it this far & now I'm listening to the NASA feed about the arrival. Crossing fingers & toes, in hopes that it nails the orbital insertion instead of missing & zipping off into deep space

We'll know in about 10 minutes.

With appropriate light speed lag.
Of course.

Between 35 and 52 minutes. Big lag

That worked.

A speed demon girl! Juno was Jupiter's wife in Roman mythology (Greeks knew them as Zeus & Hera)

Funny kid-quip. My older kid just woke up & stumbled in rubbing her eyes, asking what I'm watching is about. "Juno!" "No, I don't know, that's why I asked, mom."

So bitchin. So cool.

Just checked in to see the result, thanks for the updates everyone. Another historic event of what will probably be known someday as the early space age.

And, it should be pointed out; it was done using Newtonian physics to negotiate the route.
Thanks Isaac. Big set of "shoulders" there.

Another bitchin part is that we as public get to vote on where to have them take pictures.
