I took a few pics of Jupiter last night. This one has not been edited due to me not knowing what I am doing. Any tips would be great!

Very nice shot of Jupiter. I have been playing with Registax on my moon shots. I down loaded it free from the web.

Hi dbowlds, thats a great exposure and focus on Jupiter. Even at this scale I can see the belts. If you feel adventurous and have a laptop, you might try recording with this same setup but as a video file. There is a YouTube video that shows how to get video captures from your XSi using software: VideoFromXSi
You can then use Registax to process the file and bring out amazing detail that you never thought was there. I did this with a webcam, and results are amazing.

Steve

Dwight don't repost in another forum. Ask a moderator if you want it moved. It is against the tos to have the same post in 2 different forums.
The following is a quote from the tos.

Thanks for the Tip, this will prevent me from buying a neximage camera. I will try this tonight and if clear skys permit give it a go.

I attempted to use registax but instead of stacking my image it put 2 different pics of jupiter on the same image about a couple images apart, this may have been an error on my part when aligning.

I'm far from an expert in using Registax, but I think that if you use the minimum size rectangle around the planet in the beginning, the program should follow it better as the disk moves around in the video field. Getting multiple images can happen if your disk jumps around too much within a large selection rectangle.
