A very nice Jove there Mauro! :applause:

Suddenly the ASI120MM seems to be in a lot of planetary imagers' hands.....and rightly so!!! :grin:

Yes you may post the picture with credits. Marco Guidi has made other versions ( http://forum.astrofi...44796&mode=view ), and I believe we can process the image even further better.

Hi again Mauro & Marco.....would I be correct in suspecting that you aligned the rgb channels on the limb and not those details on/in the disk..?

I hope I'm not being too picky :) but I think the images would benefit by a slight adjustment in the red channel's x&y shifts.....but regardless, as I said, excellent images..! :applause: :applause:

You are probably right (let us see what Marco says). This is not the very final version.

Mauro, Stunning! Details are incredible. Nice combination of the new camera and the 16" scope. Thanks for posting

Of course you can, put this is the definitive version.

Hi, I have reprocessed the R channel using a "blind" deconvolution algorithm.

Hi actually, for the moment, it is a custim processing that I have developed in Mathematica. I use an optimization technique that spans a three-parameter space of PSF functions. The "best" PSF is returned. U am still working on the optimization criterion (ie what is "best").
Sometimes the best psf is close to a gaussian psf with FWHM slightly greater that the theoretical fwhm of the optic. In this case it is 0.35".
With this hint one may attempt a classical deconvolution with a PSF that size (you must convert in pixels) and the use some contrast enhacement. One may try sevral PSF radiuses in the vicinity of the above.

Hello, I have reprocessed the RGB tom keep noise below perception threshold.

Here it is an RGB and an RRGB.

This picture has become my benchmark for testing processing methods. I think I have improved.
The bluish border on the right is due to a rapid alignment achieved by shifting the frames laterally (instead of derotation, which would definitely be needed at this scale)

Well, every time i Think there is no further room for improvements, then, some times later I find a way to improve a little bit. I think that optimizing processing is a very important aspect of imaging.
