Jupiter and Saturn best I could do

Recommended Posts

Managed to capture Jupiter and Saturn tonight with my 12inch f4 newtonion, just primary imaging, no barlow as planets to low from here in the UK. I captured with zwo asi 224. I know they're not great but probably the last I'll do this season.

Indeed.  Good efforts.  I reckon it would be worth pulling the originals for those (that is, the processed image before it was in JPG format) into Registax and asking it to align the colour planes.  You might get a bit more detail by doing so.

Stu (I think) posted a graph in another planetary imaging thread showing the height above the horizon for Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.  From memory Mars looks pretty good for next year with Jupiter and Saturn getting better the year after.

I meant to add -- I prefer to avoid using JPG images where possible because the compression is lossy.  PNG may be a better choice to preserve detail in the image.
