Jupiter and some of it's moons!! Taken with the Mighty Skywatcher 127 Maksutov, and the QHY IMG 132 E Planetary cam. Images taken at 90 seconds long, all AVI files were stacked in Registax 6 and final processed in Photoshop CS2. Many frames where between 1200-3000 frames which were stacked, and some images where used with the Celestron Ulitma APO 2x Barlow. The best image up to date as to the Jupiter extreme close-up, achieving a massive amount of detail, the sharpness and clarity was spectcular as the Mak despite is small apeture revealed incredible detail which demonstrates that if you have good seeing and the Earth's atmosphere is very steady then it's possible to achieve this level detail in smaller scopes!! This as to be the best image yet for me!!! So chuffed to bits!!
