Jupiter  2020/06/11

Good details captured on a night with stable seeing.
Enough to select 18 minutes of data (about 140,000 frames). 6 minutes of sharp high contrast data per filter was enough. The planet could be higher in the sky but that's as high as it gets for now, specially in the Northern hemisphere.

Traditional Red, Green and Blue filters
Seeing was pretty good at 8 to 9 / 10
18mins of data, 6 minutes per filter
OTA: C14
Focal Length  7,250mm
Astro-Physics 2" barlow
Effective focal ratio: f/20.3
Baader filters
Camera: ASI290mm
PA  mark III  ADC (Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector)
Mount: AP1100 CP4
Firecapture, AS3!, Winjupos

Thank you all for the comments. Some pretty good seeing. I tried a bunch of iterations, couldn't get any more details.
