I am still very much a newb at both astronomy and imaging. Below is my third attempt and best Jupiter so far! Seeing was fair. I was able to image the great red spot, Io's shadow in transit across Jupiter with Io in the foreground and Callisto shining faintly above.

Looking good! How long was your avi and what did you use to stack?

That's a lot better than my first attempt! Nice job. I took the liberty of doing a little fiddling in GIMP.

Very nice Salient!

And to Alan, I know color is more art than science, but I've put Salient's image into Corel 4 to fiddle it a little (which here at night-time the background space and planet limb of yours seemed toward purple, and Salient's toward green, but very nice image!)

Regards, Jason H.

Yes, that looks good Jason. Hopefully I will develop a better eye for this processing stuff.

Excellent GRS and shadow capture! I like the last image, ideally rotated 45 or so CW. Thanks for posting

Regards,
Steve

Color adjustment is always tough, right out of the chute. I downloaded a Cassini satellite image and keep it around for my color guide. Of course, this is NASA's interpretation of the color.

Definitely seeing new details and it's much improved too, congratulations on doing so well so soon out of the gate!

Best wishes in your future astro-endeavors too! Jason H.
