Jupiter 19th September


Recommended Posts

Thought it was a bit early to try Jupiter at the moment but after seeing some great images here i decided to have a go with my humble 8" sct.

Up at the silly time of 4am but quite pleased with the result,

Had to up the gain way to high to achieve 30fps with my dbk21 so a bit noisy and still got the dreaded onion rings,

Things can only improve as we approach opposition.

Thanks for looking.

Nice processing like it. Messing with gamma can cause onion skin effect on jupiter, Though i only ever got it by raising gamma. On the new 618 chip mono. lowering gamma did not cause onion skin. Why these differences i have no idea. Set at 100. with brightness at default. You will get no problem. Well worth shooting jupiter right about now. It will improve a lot. but good results will start to happen now for sure. As your nice result shows.
