Recommended Posts

posted this a few times (easy to see I'm new at this game)...

anyway, this is my first and thus far the only image of Jupiter.


Skywatcher 250px

Canon 5Dmk3 with ML firmware (x3 Raw crop)

10mm Plossl and adapter tube (no Barlow I'm afraid)

3 x 15 second video clips, processed in AS3 and Photoshop

Thanks for the 'likes' guys... I'm very happy with this first attempt, even though it's not perfect it shows me what's possible.

It's certainly got me hooked, I guess that's how it goes eh! 

I'm totally amazed at the level of software sophistication these days, my blurry video has become an image worthy of a 1980's episode of Sky at Night.

I need to get a Barlow for the next clear evening, x120 is not enough to pull out the detail.  X240 ought to work well, even if hand tracked.
