The image is 1300 individual frames stacked from a 2 minute video containing about 3100 frames. I shot the video at f/24.5 or about 350x with what is essentially a glorified web cam. Stacking and processing the video frames into a single image has the effect of cancelling out a lot of the atmospheric turbulence, so you'll never get as good a view at the EP as you will with stacking images.

Good shot.
It's amazing what can be done with software.

That's great picture and that's super for your 4 inch scope! Much better than best picture in 1950's!

Hi Mike,
thank you very much. That's great. I already tested it on one of my pictures.
Nice greetings,
Roland
