Posted this over in the "Classic's" also. Had a couple minutes this evening and was itching to try out the Quantum 4 with the Meade 884 tripod. Pretty mild also this evening and clear so I also took some video with a Philips webcam. I did not use the internal barlow but used a Orion Shorty plus 2X. Here's the set up.

Had a pretty good alignment and the scope tracked very well. The tripod is also very stable and any time it was bumped, it settled very quickly. Captured @ 1000 frames. Final stack was @ 335. Here's what I got before the clouds rolled in.

Scott,

That is an incredible image of Jupiter. Mighty fine scopes, those Quantums.

Here's a reprocess. Improvement? Maybe less grainy.

As this is a duplicate thread with more responses in Classics, I am locking this thread.
