My first Jupiter (with Canon 600D)


Recommended Posts

So, since buying all my gear ready for taking some decent pics, there has been nothing but clouds here. Well, when there wasn't, I have been too busy. Last night though, there was a wee break. Seeing wasn't great, high level clouds I fear, and I need to work on some settings.

However, I did manage to get a couple videos of Jupiter. First time I've managed to get my NEQ6 sort of tracking. Using Astrotortilla, and Backyard Eos with my 600D I managed to capture 1800 1/100s frames at 800 ISO. Stacked with Registax 6. Scope is a Skywatcher Explorer 130p-ds using a x2 Deluxe Skywatcher Barlow.

So here it is, my first Jupiter... And, in fact, apart from my picture of the moon from a few weeks ago when I had just got my scope set-up (using my old Sony A200) only my second picture from space.  Well, I did have a Jupiter with my old A200, but, to be honest, I REALLY didn't know what I was doing then, and it was a very simple single frame with zero processing.  Isn't really worthy of counting.
