SlimPaling Posted May 23, 2017 Share Posted May 23, 2017 Hi Folks ... I recently started trying my hand at imaging Jupiter using my APM refractor / 3x Televue Barlow / DMK mono CCD optical train for the very first time. However the results have been very disappointing After processing the video files using Registax6 and Photoshop some final images are tolerable at best ............ but mostly not good at all. Am I correct in thinking that the atmosphere has been particularly bad in recent weeks? ... or am I not focusing my optical train correctly? Jupiter was certainly bouncing around on my computer screen most of the time. I live a few miles north of Nottingham so have to look at Jupiter through the haze from the city and we seem to be under a major flight path from USA into Europe here giving us regular high haze. I almost feel that I ought to give up on planetary imaging and concentrate on other things Any comments? Mike Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
