I had planned to be testing/experimenting with capturing video of Jupiter with the 9.25 Edge SCT, and had gotten some in early on (to having something "in the bank" so to speak, just in case). Jupiter had been rather lower in the sky than I wanted when the early videos were made. So I decided to image the Trifid nebula on the SVQ100 while waiting for Jupiter to rise higher in the sky.
After a test shot showed some of the Lagoon nebula I re-framed the shot to include all of it. I ran off sequences of 15 lights (x4) and 10 darks (x2) and noticed clouds were on the horizon and rapidly approaching. I stopped taking subs on Trifid/Lagoon and swapped setups to capture video of Jupiter again before the clouds arrived. I ended up with 41 usable subs at 30 seconds each on the Trifid/Lagoon combo. Wish I had more subs (and longer subs). The Moon was out adding lots of unwanted light to the subs, and I wasn't expecting to get a usable image out of the testing, but it turned out better than I had expected (feared).
