iPhone picture taken April 15th from central Illinois, USA.
Not bad, all things considered. A few days later, I acquired a Celestron Solar Sustem Imager camera.
Callisto 1.5.17, 22.59. Cropped from a 480x480 AVI of Jupiter and processed on its own as an AVI, this way means it will be stacked on the moon and not the planet= no trail . I used Vdub to crop the AVI and enlarge then put it though PIPP to center, AS!2 to stack and Registax for sharpening & wavelets. 10" dob x3 barlow, asi 120 mcs camera hand tracked.
