I did part of the moon, and then Jupiter. Jupiter of course was very low in the sky so the conditions weren't great, the video looked nothing like what my eye could see, it looked fuzzy with bands and the spot barely visible, and it was dancing. but after watching a short tutorial on how to use registax, the details popped out, even more so than what I was seeing with my on Jupiter, less so on the moon.

Very good 1st attempt. There is a member here who put put a series of YouTube videos that does a great job, https://m.youtube.co...4451&feature=iv

It’s well worth the time.

Yeah, thanks for the links, after doing all this I didn’t even think about using a Barlow. I just tried it and don’t have enough back focus, need an extension tube. It never ends, ordered a bahtinov mask today. I fear that this hobby is going to get very expensive. Triplet APO, GoTo Mount, autoguider, dedicated cameras, etc...

 

I’m going to try some deep sky stuff with my ST80 first though, see if I can even do it, a lot to learn.
