That's a pretty good one, Richard. It's gettin' harder to eek out any good ones. By the time I get set up, it is way past meridian and I'll have a short opportunity. We aren't gonna have much time left to get many more of Jupiter for this go around.

Thanks, Freddy and David.

Yeah, ToxMan, the window's closing. On to Saturn and the Moon. I'm a little bummed that Saturn is so low from my location, but it is what it is. I bet Mike's place in Baja has a nice angle.

Richard, very nice image! There does seem to be some vertical/horizontal noise lines. It may be time for a camera upgrade. Thanks for posting

Regards,
Steve

Thanks, Steve! Sometimes varying the gain/fps combination helps to minimize them, but it does seem to be a NI5 flaw. If I understood it better, I might be able to address it. I suspect I may have a new camera by the time Jupiter comes around again.

Thanks, John. Here's one more out of the same batch. I wish I could eliminate the 'fixed pattern noise', it would improve it some.

Yes nice results Richard!!!
Your new scope really has a lot of potential for sure!
What fps did you use?

I seem to remember the Neximage is similar to the SPC900
so if you go lower then 15fps it won't compress likely.
Maybe that's one of the sources of the noise???????
Just my 2 worth.
