Jupiter 24/11/2023 APM140F7


Recommended Posts

This is my first attempt to image Jupiter through my new APM140F7APO. Using Sharpcap, DBK21AUS618, ZWO ADC and 3x Barlow.

Processed in AS!3, Registax and Gimp. I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing yet, so any advice would be appreciated.

I have just started planetary imaging as well and have only captured Jupiter twice. The seeing was terrible last night in Oxford. I got a semi respectable image last time out but really struggled last night. It was like looking through water. My attempt from last night below.

The grid pattern seems to have come from using 1.5 drizzle in AS!3. But I can't get the image any better, as I don't think I had the ADC aligned properly. I had a further three AVIs from the night, which I ran through WINJUPOS image de-rotation, but the end result was even worse. I need to get some better data. 

Thanks for the help.
