Help with Jupiter and Regsitax 6- raw avi included!

Recommended Posts

I've tried processing this through Registax 6 and a bit of cropping and adjustment has brought out this:

Capture%2005_01_2012%2020_11_34cropped.jpg?w=ca5e70a5

Using the equipment in my signature was hoping it would have brought out a bit more detail or am I being a bit too hopeful? Seeing conditions were good and my scope was cooled down for at least 45 mins.

Link to the avi below :

Raw avi file

Many thanks for any help in advance!

Cheers,

Will

This is my attempt

Run through castrator to get rid of the black space around the image then loaded into Registax v6

Aligned on Centre of Gravity and best 20% of the frames stacked. Wavelets, Histogram and RGB balance applied

@eid that looks a lot sharper than my attempt! Did you do that through registax 6?

Cheers,

Will

Yes I ran it through registax using the instructions here:

I used about 800 frames. Then I doubled its size in registax.

Then I buffed it up a little in Lightroom. I think I should have increased exposure slightly.

This is what it loooked like before Lightroom (though I have cropped it):

For cropping the video pre-process it in Castrator

Webcam Astrophotography by Emil Kraaikamp - Castrator

Castrator will center (=register) all the frames on the planet and crop the frames as you whish, creating a much lighter video file. The resulting video file will weight a lot less (in this case only a few Mb) and, as the planet has been pre-registered, Registax will work better and much faster.

Use a barlow or eyepiece proyection to get a bigger planet. Care with the focus, take your time to focus. Observe the stars arround, if they are blinking probably you will not get good results on the planet.
