Jupiter with 8" Dob
      #5541483 - 11/27/12 03:26 AM Attachment (58 downloads)

A shot of Jupiter taken with an Orion SSCI IV and my ancient Meade 8" Dob fitted with a DobDriverII. I've not had much chance to image Jupiter lately due to what seems like almost permanent cloud cover but every time I do get out I seem to be getting better results as I get used to the camera. I don't think this is too bad considering my modest equipment!
This is the result of a 1 minute avi stacked in Registax5 and tweaked a little in Photoshop.

Really nice work there Andy Hope you get more clear weather soon, calm cold winter sky is my favorite.

That, my friend, is a very good result considering.

Very nice!

I tried the other day, and the focus just wasn't there.

I managed to get out for an hour last night, more to play with the camera settings than to do some 'proper' imaging, as I still haven't found the optimal settings yet. Seeing wasn't brilliant but from the very quick processing I did the results look promising. Will post a shot or two if they come out ok!
