I know, 130PDS is not the best scope for planetary AP.

But I just wanted to share my beginner's results.

Both taken on 5th and 6 of May 2018, using 130PDS, x3 Barlow and ZWO ASi224MC.

Thanks for looking :)

Very nice picture. What barlow were you using ? Did you have to use any extensions for getting the image in focus ? I have a 200pds and having tough time focusing with 3x barlow and asi120mc.

Thanks and Regards,

Yogesh

Hi, l used just the cheapest x3 barlow l managed to find on ebay... No extensions.

And yea, focusing was very challenging... I used bahtinov mask and focused on the star closer to Jupiter and anyway, it was almost a guessing game, thats why l tried to catch Jupiter as early as possible...

      So I originally planned to go to a good vantage point from the top of Pendle hill, watch out for witches whilst there. It is a local and well known Lancastrian landmark. However my wife is recovering from hospital treatment and so I didn't want to leave her so made do much closer to home.
      A short drive (2 minutes) took me to a place aside the motorway slip road but with a clear-ish view of the setting planets. I was only use 10x30 bins so the view was not particularly well defined but still impressive when considering distances and such. 
      Anyway it is in the bag but would like to do better if at all possible. 
      If the skies are more obliging tomorrow I may venture out with the EEVA set up and grab some data, however the forecast is not so good.
      Cheers

      Hi All,
      I took the following images of Jupiter and Saturn with my CPC 1100 scope and my NexImage planetary imager (old no. 93712 640 x 480 model). Seeing was generally bad with the planet dancing all over the place but there were brief sharp moments. I took about 10000 frames at 15 fps. using oacapture.  When I first tried to stack using AS!3 (AutoStakkert 3) using Wine on Linux, I found that it would not open compressed AVI files so after some Google searches and reading through forums, I found that I could use ffmpeg to convert the AVI file to a series of jpg images. Unfortunately AS!3 crashed when I tried opening maybe 100 or so images, but I later found I could convert the compressed AVI to uncompressed AVI which it opened and stacked (with basically just the default settings and about 25% of the frames) without problems, I deconvoluted with rawtherapee ,and finally used the unsharp mask of Gimp a little. While I am not unhappy with the results I think I could have done better had I used my Bahtinov mask for focusing and initially captured to an uncompressed AVI.
      Thanks for looking!
