  12. Yes 3x on Jupiter is a good way to increase the magnification of your image - tricky to keep the planet on the imaging chip of the xbox camera without a goto/driven mount though. I use a x2 barlow at the moment for lunar/solar and planetary imaging but saving up for a 3x televue. Telescope House stock them - http://www.telescopehouse.com/acatalog/TeleVue_3x_Barlow_1_25__.html
  13. great image - do you have a website where the post the specifics of the capture/processing etc ?
  14. I think you'd be really surprised at the results given the single shot frame you've shown here. Install Registax 5 (or 6) and follow some of the tutorials, there are a few on youtube and see how you get on - when you get the final result (post wavelets) you won't be disappointed.
