Jupiter captured on 9th May 2018, Jupiter opposition using a Celestron 8" SCT, the NexStar 8SE, all data captured using the Skyris 618C CCD.
20% of the best frames were stacked, de-rotated and processed. Total number of frames used in the final image stack was was 16800.
Well, its been a long time coming but finally managed to get something captured and processed of this season. I have captured a handful of nights in the past month but am struggling to get much out of them but I do need to spend more time on the raw data so there might be some more in there. Despite the altitude, I'm fairly happy with this result considering the size of the scope compared to other observers in the forum. I think the colour is a little off so will look to correct at some point but wanted to get something up in the gallery for now.
Clear skies and good luck imaging to you all, especially the UK based observers.
