Nigel G Posted February 17, 2016 Share Posted February 17, 2016 I first tried imaging jupiter 2 months ago and was over the moon ☺ with the results. Amazed with a decent picture of Jupiter and the big storm. At the time Jupiter was at a low to horizon altitude. Ever since then I have tried many times to capture as good or better images. Last night was the best seeing I have experienced, through the 8" dobsonian with a 10mm and x2 barlow I could clearly see the red dot and all the bands, I could even see smaller storms within the bands. Jupiter was high in the sky. The scope had cooled and ep's and mirrors clear, So I was careful with setting up and focusing the camera. ISO 800 , 30fps high quality , auto white balance , I focused on Jupiter with live view on. Took about 1.5 minutes of video. I also tried a few other settings ISO 1600 and 400. I also used 2 stacked x2 barlows on the camera, I viewed Jupiter with a 30mm ep and the same 2 barlows and could see the mentioned details Waking up this morning excited to get processing run the videos through PIPP, then stacked with registax, what a disappointing result. Better than previous tries but not nearly as good as my first attempt. So stacked through autostakkert and processed with registax , no improvement. I think I'm getting something wrong, I just can't work it out. I think it's camera related although my dso imaging is getting better . Does anyone have any idea what might be the problem I have seen some stunning images of Jupiter taken through 8" dobs, I don't expect to be able to equal these but I would expect to get far more detail than 2 pale bands a red dot and dark poles. My first attempt I had 4 bands the red storm and pale poles. Cheers Nigel. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
