I used my 6" Astro-Physics (f/7.5) at f/18 (2.25x barlow plus extension) and took several 3 minute videos through FireCapture to test out parameters.
Only got round to processing them this week and although nothing in comparison to what others have achieved with this camera or in general , I am quite pleased with the sensitivity and frame rate. Well done ZWO!
I have not done any planetary imaging in years (last tried with a Logitech webcam in 2004) and have concentrated in DSO (which I took a break from in 2006) and solar (since 2012) - so my processing abilities are not up to scratch (there is so much signal in solar imaging that you cannot really go wrong).
For post-processing the attached I used Avistack (AS2 was much faster but I ended up with some artefacts in the stacked images which became obvious in post processing), then RL deconvolution in AIP4WIN/Iris and then high pass filter and saturation in PS6.
Main parameters for the camera in FC (beta 37) were 50 gamma, 50-60 gain and 16 to 25ms exposures depending on focal length. I did not de-rotate or separate colours before stacking - is that common practice for all video lengths?
Any input/comments greatly appreciated!
