Decided to give the cell phone mount I made another try since I havent used it in like a month. Only stacked 15 out of a few hundred frames because things just werent cooperating tonight it felt like.

I need to learn more about stacking images so Jupiter is done separately. I always lose the moons it seems like.

That's pretty darn good with a cell phone! Did you shoot a movie of this than stack the images? What program did you use?

Thanks,

bob

Thanks, one day Ill invest in a proper AP set up, but for now this holds me off. haha

This is from a video that was maybe 15 seconds long. I separated it into an image sequence and then ran it through registax 6. I ended up only happy with 15 frames, so thats all that was stacked. I may work on it a little more to see if I can get more from Jupiter a little later as well.
