I tried to find some informative threads and even youtube videos on the type of telescopes people use for these planetary photography.
Here is what I found:
I understand the planets require a high magnification and large aperture. That's fine .
I mean go ahead on youtube, look for videos regarding this topic and I see people capturing a video of Jupiter , that single frames of his video looks 10x better than I could ever stack together. I just don't see too many videos regarding their gear they use unless it's a $1500 Meade S.Cass.
But what's the shortest focal range that still produces good images?
Do I need to be really in the 2000mm focal range to produce anything that shows the bands of Jupiter?
I mean, i tried 560mm and the results were poor, even with Autostakkert + Registrax corrections. I just went ahead and deleted it, because it looked completely unfixable actually single frames looked better than the stacked one even though I only selected to stack 10%
