Last night after photographing NEOWISE with my old Nikon and telephoto lenses piggybacked on my SCT, I then turned the telescope to Jupiter and recorded a series of AVI files of it. This image is a stack of 2,000 frames from a 13,000 frame AVI recorded at 544X544 pixel resolution with a ZWO 290MC camera, ADC and a Antares 1.5X Barlow for an effective focal ratio of F/15. The Great Red Spot was about to rotate out of sight at the time of recording the video data during fair seeing.

So far I have not been  using WinJupos. If I can figure it out, I would be because the benefits of doing so are obvious, especially for users of smaller telescopes.
