Thanks Pete. I did runs of 5000 frames, captured at about 45 fps, with an ROI of 400 x 400 pixels. I'm not at my PC so that's from  memory.

Nice images there Bryan, you might be able to get the frame rate up without the Neodynium filter.  The SPC looks great and very nicely controlled, wonder if the filter helps with that actually?

Thanks Craig. Although we live on the outskirts of a large town, our street lights go off at about 01:00;  so trying without the filter might be a good idea.

Very pleasing images some nice detail to further tease out, definitely worth a reprocess! 😉

Thanks Simon. Yes, they were a quick process as I was very tired that evening, only having had 4 hours sleep from 05:00 that morning. Good job I'm on holiday this week! I might stack all the images and do a de-rotate in WinJupos.

      Hey everyone !
      Hope your all doing as well as you can be with this pandemic ! Im completely new to this stuff, im looking for some advice on the right telescope kit to buy. I dont want to be spending too much cause like im new and wanting to try it out, just hoping you guys have got some suggestions for telescopes for the value.
      Mainly wanting to look at stars (my stepdad passed away 3 weeks ago and my partner bought a "name a star" for him and would love to see it properly) and im interested in see the planets like the rings and stuff too
      Any help would be very appreciated ! 
      Possibly below £100 the cheaper the better at the minute but dont want it to be so cheap and tacky that i can only see the end of the garden through it lol
      Stay safe everyonr

      Finally got to image Mars this year after some appauling weather in the UK. 
      This was my first time out using the ZWO ASI 224MC on a very cold eve.  I think i've probably the maxed out my equipment (Skywatcher 200p) and the location (back garden in the middle of an estate) for this image, so pretty pleased with the results.  Its 15% of 11000 frames stacked using Autostakkert, and Registax used to bring out some detail.
      Equipment used:
      Skywatcher 200p with dual speed focuser, EQ5 mount with dual axis motors Tal x3 Barlow ZWO ASI224mc with IR Filter  Lenovo x270 laptop running SharpCap  Image Processed in Autostakkert, Registax and photoshop

      Hi All,
      Sharing some more Mars images, quite possibly the last images of Mars that I'll be spending time on capturing this season, but the last image, 14th November has something strange on it.. two streaks which look like smoke plume, volcanic like, smoke plumes being blown in a direction away from the eruption.... Is it possible that Mars is still active?
