Some Jupiters from 16/06


Recommended Posts

Had another crack at Jupiter on Saturday evening. Just finished processing several videos i captured. Mostly used the 127mm Mak with 2x barlow but i also used the element off a 2x barlow attached to the front of my Altair GPCam, then into a 2x barlow (i assume this gives approx 3.6x mag??)

 I even had a go with the humble ST80 just for the challenge and to see what if anything i could capture. 

All captured with Sharpcap. Processed using Pipp, AS, Registax, Lightroom and Gimp.

Nice images Bobby...I don't take many astro photos but when I do I also use Gimp...my final step is to duplicate the finished image/layer then make the top layer mode "Multiply" and adjust the opacity slider to get to the desired effect. I tried it on your 1st image.

88% opacity then 52% for the 2nd

I hadn't realised that the first image had an odd background. It all looked to be one even colour on my macbook. 

My boss actually showed me a method using word and paint to position a pic in a suitable place depending on where you want it on your desktop. 

So I did the following for use on my work computer.
