Jupiter 9 November AM Skywatcher 150PL and Philips Toucam

First go with a Philips Toucam attached to a barlow on my scope. Running in Sharpcap and processed in Registax.

Hi. I use a V-Gear TalkCam and got this without barlow -


I have 3x barlow but seems focuser won't go far enough in to get focus. Any ideas?

Sharpcap is great, but I prefer to process in Iris...a few times I've gotten results which I couldn't get in Registax.

That's a good shot with no barlow. Are you using a !50pl as well or a different scope? Surprised you can't get focus with a barlow as it's essentially another eyepiece. Have you tried to get sharp focus on a star or the moon first to get close to the focus you need for Jupiter? I know on my scope when I use a barlow it's harder to focus as the fov gets smaller and everything wobbles more. I've not heard of IRIS i'll have to check it out. On my latest efforts, after sharpcap I now go through PIPP then Autostakkert and then wavelets in Registax
