Jupiter from MADRID SKY new

If I am not mistaken, this is my first post here with my own images. Last year I have been so busy I have had no time to sit in the observatory to do anything! GOD!! I hate that!! So this Jupiter is "old"... but today I processed old video at last.

I hope to retake imagery now, God's willing, and little by little publish results.

Bless!
Sam

Thank you lads. To be almost "first light" it is not bad, is it? I wish all nights were as good as that one, but unfortunately this is not Canary Islands by any means! GEEE!!

Mike, given your resolution levels, you must have conditions near Canary Islands airy conditions, don't you?



I envy you, boy.

Yes Sam, the Sierra San Pedro Martir has the best seeing conditions in all of N.America. It has been measured at the summit to be 0.47 arcseconds median seeing. Where I image from at a lower elevation regularly has 1 arcsecond or better.
So it appears I picked a good place to move to! Have you ever considered taking an imaging trip to the Canaries?

cheers

Mike

Arrrg, I envy you more than you can imagine! 1 arcsec or better means in the "lucky video" technique you probably get 0,50 arcsec (or less) from time to time!! That's amazing!!

I have considered MOVING PERMANENTLY to Canary Islands. Only my personal situation (even though I am *FREE* to go wherever I want) does not allow this so right now.

But I see myself there sometime, God's permitting. Maybe I could get some small house there to pass my holidays.

Well, I have to enjoy what I have now (fighting against seeing).

That 50% stack looks great, can't wait to see the 80% one!

Thanks to all.

Now it is 85% stacked, and adjusted with proper monitor contrast/brightness levels. Do you see it too dark or too light?

I see it way overprocessed as to my taste.

Yes, I agree it is overprocessed to show detail with more ease, but it is also an pure IR image. That pre-condition has to reflect "somehow" in the final image. IR is that weird and "contrasty."

But I agree that when I get into RGB I will be much more careful.

Sam I like the 50% stack the best, your 80% is a bit harsh, but maybe if you processed it the way you did the 50%. Does the avi when you preview it warrant using almost all the frames? If so thats some unusually good seeing!

cheers

Mike

Ok. I will try to process it lighter.

And this is 80% stack. This is a case in which good seeing asks for a more restringent "lucky technique", which means less frames stacked might lead to sharper result.

In any case, you judge.

Mike, I forgot I made public the raw video.

Here.

Instructions to download original 200Mb video.

1) You click on video window itself. Another window opens.
2) At the top there is a small arrow pointing downwards, which says "ms" or "more." When you click there, you have the option to download it.
