Hi all

 

Enduring the low altitude (this image is the lowest I have recorded Jupiter, at 28 degrees for my location). Transparency was variabe due to high cirrus, seeing showed fleeting good moments on screen. This is a derotation of 8 minutes. Some more data to follow later. 

 

Thanks for looking

Please, can you just post a file from the video that is non stacked or even stacked but not processed? i want to see how much different it is from video out of camera to the final one.

Here's a side-by-side of the steps:

 

1) Raw stack

2) Registax for wavelets and color balance, stretching

3) Winjupos derotation

4) Final touch up in Photoshop

 

Also, if you follow the link, you'll see a raw video of the capture feed during the best of the night, gain boosted and color adjusted in PIPP,  just below the final image. Give it some time to load properly (32mb).

Amazing! so that is how it should be, i think i got something similar to that or even better, so it is all about stacking and processing that i need to improve with, i just didn't use Winjupos yet, maybe time i should.

 

Thank you very very much, this is kind of posts i like, it is very helpful, thanks a lot! waytogo.gif

Good results given the low altitude!

 

I think you caught some of the current changes that Anthony Wesley has observed and imaged in the GRS...wish I understood better what he and astronomers think is going on...

 

Anyone else know about this???

Great capture of the GMR disturbance! I hope I can get it too.

 

Here's a side-by-side of the steps:

 

1) Raw stack

2) Registax for wavelets and color balance, stretching

3) Winjupos derotation

4) Final touch up in Photoshop

 

Same workflow here! Although I do the color correction in ps. I wonder if it in registax before could help the winjupos? Thanks for the info!
